The Mighty Sniffer
Anonymous Reader writes "One of the most important tools in a security professional's arsenal is the mighty 'sniffer'. Its power is never underestimated, never undervalued. A sniffer is many things to many people. In the right hands it is invaluable, allowing for the analysis of complex traffic passing over the network, in the wrong hands it can be a destructive force, allowing for the capture of confidential or sensitive data as it flows on the wire."
