Ettercap is a tool made by Alberto Ornaghi (ALoR) and Marco Valleri (NaGA) and is basically a suite for man in the middle attacks on a LAN. For those who do not likethe Command ike Interface (CLI), it is provided with an easy graphical interface.Ettercap is able to perform attacks against the ARP protocol by positioning itself as"man in the middle" and, once positioned as this, it is able to:- infect, replace, delete data in a connection- discover passwords for protocols such as FTP, HTTP, POP, SSH1, etc ...- provide fake SSL certificates in HTTPS sections to the victims.- etc ...Plugins are also available for attacks such as DNS spoofing.What is a "
" attack?This is an attack where a pirate put its machine in the logical way between twomachines speaking together as shown in the picture below.Once in this position, the pirate can launch a lot of different very dangerous attacks because he/she is in the way between to two normal machines.There are several kinds of attacks to become "man in the middle", we will see in thistutorial attacks based on the
.The ARP protocol is a layer 3 protocol used to translate IP addresses (ex: physical network card addresses or MAC addresses (ex:0fe1.2ab6.2398).When a device tries to access a network resource, it will first send requests to other devices asking for the MAC address associated with the IP it wants to reach. Thecaller will keep the IP - MAC association in its cache, the ARP cache, to speed upnew connections to the same IP address.The attack comes when a machine asks the other ones to find the MAC addressassociated with an IP address. The pirate will answer to the caller with fake packetssaying that the IP address is associated to its own MAC address and in this way, will"short-cut" the real IP - MAC association answer coming from another host. Thisattack is referred as ARP poisoning or 
 and is possible only if the pirateand the victims are inside the same broadcast domain which is defined on the host byan IP address and a Subnet mask, for example: our tutorial, we will use the case study below where a machine with IP internet resources from a local network. After the ARP poisoning attack, TheEttercap machine with IP is set as "man in the middle".
 Please note the following things about the Ettercap machinebehaviour:
- - - Every time Ettercap starts, it disables IP forwarding in the kernel and begins to forward packets itself.It can slow down the network performances between the two hosts because of the packets' machineprocess time.Ettercap needs root privileges to open the Link Layer sockets. After the initialization phase, the rootprivileges are not needed anymore, so Ettercap drops them to UID = 65535 (nobody). Since Ettercap hasto write (create) log files, it must be executed in a directory with the right permissions.
The goal of our tutorial is to provide warning about the danger of "man in the middle"attacks by ARP spoofing. In theARP poisoning tutorial, we will explain how toconfigure the Ettercap machine as "man in the middle", then, in thefiltering tutorial,we will show you some attacks. Finally, somecountermeasuresare given to fightagainst these damned ARP poisoning attacks.To see the Ettercap version available:
