    Default Understanding Man-In-The-Middle Attacks

    Hi everyone, a few instructors here at InfoSec Institute have put together a short presentation and video tutorial on how to perform a Man-In-The-Middle (MitM) attack. You can view the presentation that diagrams out how a MitM attack works:

    Man In The Middle – Demystified | *InfoSec Resources

    You can also view a how-to video tutorial that you can follow along with if you have a few virtual machines to play with on your local network:

    Video: Man-in-the-Middle

    In a pen test, it is important to learn how to do these attacks to intercept server to server communication, server to client communication, etc.

    Coming soon we will demonstrate how to perform a MitM attack against SSL encrypted sessions.

    Happy hacking!

    You know what I've been hunting for and never found. An actual way to decrypt SSLv2 traffic or SSL traffic encrypted with weak (40bit) ciphers. Many tools (Nessus, etc) report these as issues but I've never actually seen any practical demonstration of the described weaknesses.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.
