RE: Detect Network Sniffing

  This assumes, of course, that an ISP "looking for torrenting" is
specifically looking for *copyright violations*.  If it is looking for
torrents because of bandwidth abuse, this will stick out like a sore thumb
-- "probably legal" or "not a copyright violation" are more accurate than
"perfectly legit".  Whether they're a policy violation depends on what the
local policy IS.

If you know what they're looking for (eg: ISP looking for torrenting or a
Bad Guy Bob trying to steal credentials off the wire) you could use some red
herrings.  Download a bunch of Linux distributions using Torrents (perfectly
legit) or set up some trapped admin logins to see if they show up anywhere.

Is there any way to detect if a sniffer is being used to analyze my
traffic before it gets onto the Internet? Also is it required for a sniffer
to have an IP address or can it sniff while remaining "uncontactable" on the
network?
