Packet sniffing is a technique of monitoring network traffic. It is effective
on both switched and non-switched networks. This paper discusses several methods
that result in packet sniffing on Layer 2 switched networks. Each of the sniffing
methods will be explained in detail. The purpose of the paper is to show how
sniffing can be accomplished on switched networks, and to understand how it
can be prevented.
