Network Security: Glossary

Key Points

  • Network security affects all modern communication!

ARP Poisoning Attack
  • Hacker needs to be on the same local network as the victim and server.

  • ARP Poisoning results in spurious entries in a victim’s ARP table.

  • The affected ARP table causes the victim to transmit messages to the hacker inspite of using the server’s IP address.

  • Unless the victim inspects the route to the server, this attack cannot be discovered.

SSL Strip Attack
  • User needs to have accessed the secure site before the attack and needs to return to the website before the browser cache expires

SSH Honeypot
  • SSH needs to be remain available at a higher port which is communicated securely to valid users
