As we know that in the field of networking media, all the credit goes to the working and the performance of the network. So, on the whole without network we are not able to perform the different types of tasks that are used in networking. So, by securing the network from different type viruses, hackers, spy ware, spammers etc is called as network security. If we are not secure from these kinds of things the network of the users destroyed and all the information related to the network also destroyed. So, we should take some steps to secure our network from different types of security problems. But some common tools that are used to attack the computer network security and also break the networking are as follows.
Attack Tools Used for Computer Network Security:
There are different types of tools that are used to attack on the security of the computer network. Some common tools that are used widely are given below
- Air Snort:
As we know that wireless network need waves for their propagation of data from one place to another so, in transmission of data from one wireless device to the other one there are lots of security risks. A tool that is required to recover the encryption and read all the information present in the data packets is called Air Snort It is commonly used to attack on the wireless LAN or WLAN.
- Cain and Abel:
There are different types of software or the technologies that are used by the hijacker to hijack the network of the operating system. Some tools are also used to attack on the authentication of the network of computer security and get all the information present in that secret file. A common tool used by the attackers for such purpose is called as Cain and Abel.
It is a type of tool that is used by the networks to maintain troubleshooting and different types of software that supports the protocol such as IP or TCP. But some times this tool is used by the attackers to attack the computer network security for the sake of viewing the whole traffic of computer network and then produce a change in it. Basically it is an illegal process to monitoring the network traffic without any kind of permission.
- D- Sniff:
Another tool that is used by the attacker to attack on the working of the network security is called as d-sniff. It is the type of tool that is used by the attacker to attack on the both wired or the wireless networks and can able to steel the important data present in the emails, other files and also the password of different types of documents is referred as d-sniff.
Attackers used another tool to attack on the computer network security called as kismet. It is that type of tool which used to detect the wireless networks and monitors the IP address used to carry on the networking and can sniff the whole system. This tool is commonly applied on WLAN or WiFi etc
These are some common tools that are used by the attackers to attack on the computer network security and break down the vulnerability of the whole operating system. And with the help of these sniffing or attacking tools, it is very easy for the hackers to hijack the networking information easily. So, it’s our responsibility to use different type software to protect the network security. Some anti virus software are recommended to save the network from hijacking and from different types of thieves of data storage such as spammers.
