Passive Network Attacks
The type of network security attacks that I am going to discuss in this report is Passive attacks and what they are.
There are two main types of passive attacks and they are release of message contents and traffic analysis.
Passive attacks are very hard to detect because they don’t damage or change the information so you can’t tell they have been attacked. There are many different programs out there than can help monitor against this type of network attack and against many other attacks. Again these are made for spying and for the attacker not to be noticed.
