Subject: sniffing in a switched network - a presentation on 
ARP spoofing

Many of us know that sniffing is possible in a shared i.e. 
non-switched ethernet environment. But only few of us know 
that sniffing is also possible in a switched ethernet 
environment. One of the reasons is that it's not that 
straighforward. But it's not impossible or difficult. You can 
use man in the middle technique like ARP spoofing to sniff in 
a switched environment.

This presentation is an attempt to explain how can somebody 
sniff in a switched ethernet using ARP spoofing. Dsniff has 
existed for long as a tool for various sniffing activities. 
But recently, tools like EttercapNG have made it easier.
