What Is a Packet Sniffer? (with pictures) A packet sniffer is a device or program that allows the user to eavesdrop on traffic traveling between networked computers. The program will capture data that is addressed to other machines, saving it for later analysis. All information that travels across a network is sent in "packets." For example, when an email is sent from one computer to another, it is first broken up into smaller segments. 69 Free or Open Source Tools For Students By Jill Gordon Many Open Source software projects were either started in colleges or started by recent college graduates.

Routing versus routed protocols and the CCNA Many networking professionals don't really know what a routing protocol is or does. There are those who also couldn't tell you the difference between a routing protocol and a routed protocol. If you are working as a network engineer or preparing to take the CCNA, you need to understand the distinction between routing and routed protocols, as well as how these protocols function on the network.

Bluesnarfing Bluesnarfing is the unauthorized access of information from a wireless device through a Bluetooth connection, often between phones, desktops, laptops, and PDAs (personal digital assistant.). This allows access to a calendar, contact list, emails and text messages, and on some phones, users can copy pictures and private videos. Both Bluesnarfing and Bluejacking exploit others' Bluetooth connections without their knowledge. While Bluejacking is essentially harmless as it only transmits data to the target device, Bluesnarfing is the theft of information from the target device.
4 Tips for a Strong Executive Summary of a Security Assessment Report A small subset of the audience for which a security assessment report is intended will actually read the whole document. The majority will only have the patience for the first page. That’s why it’s important that the report start with a strong executive summary.

CompTIA Network+ Certification for Network Administrators The information technology is ruling the real world quite broadly; these days’ people are using computers, smartphones and other digital devices to perform their professional and personal tasks. One of the most important and effective aspect of IT is computer networking. Today, internet is the most widely used element of IT, countless people use internet to perform several personal and organizational operations and internet itself is a network of networks. But as compare to that organizational computer network is much more simple but effective, these days most enterprises have established their own computer network which allow their employees to share information and communicate with each other securely. Different enterprises have different network requirements for instance if a company have 200 employees so they have to design network keeping physical infrastructure and number of employees in mind.
