We offer traffic sniffing for clients who want full assurance that their product or application is truly encrypted end to end.
We can provide a data capture service, where we position ourselves between the device or application and the user with the aim to intercept and capture the traffic data.
Traffic sniffing involves capturing traffic at a scheduled time and conducting an analysis on the captured information to ensure that the encryption of data in transit is working as it should be.
A mirror or SPAN port on the network is required to allow the traffic capture to be conducted.
This service will give complete assurance that all data end to end is fully encrypted and ensure that at no point during transit data can be intercepted and read in clear-text.
If issues are found these can then be rectified before an attack or security breach occurs.

It is recommended that traffic sniffing reviews should be conducted during the design or implementation of new applications or systems.
If major changes are made to the application or system design, then it is recommended that additional testing is conducted. This ensures that any recent changes are not introducing new vulnerabilities into the environment.
Traffic sniffing review prices are based on the number and type of systems that are required to be captured, therefore there is not an off-the-shelf price for a traffic sniffing review.
