What is Man in the Middle Attack
Man-in-the-middle attacks are perhaps one of the more intricate and advanced types of security breaching approaches. As the name suggests, such an attack includes the clandestine position of a software specialist between the client and server ends of a correspondence. In this situation neither end of the correspondence knows that the malicious specialist is present in the line of correspondence. Generally, the man in the middle essentially transfers the information transmissions amongst client and server as if nothing is occurring. What is for the most part occurring in parallel with this procedure is that the specialist is likewise recording the information as it is gone through. This results in a third party having a wide range of kinds of information, from login and password credentials to proprietary and confidential information. It is also possible for the man-in-the-middle agent to modify data "on the fly" causing untold problems for the victim.
Man-in-middle attacks have increased considerable since the introduction of wireless networking. Now there is no need for the rogue to connect to a wire, instead the data can simply be intercepted from anywhere within range of the wireless signal (such as in the parking lot outside an office or the road in front of a house).
The most ideal approach to keep away from such attacks is to utilize encryption and secure protocols in all communications.
