Man in the Middle (MitM)

In cybersecurity, a man-in-the-middle attack is an attack where the threat actor manages to intercept and forward the traffic between two entities without either of them noticing. To pull this off the, attacker has to be able to convincingly “impersonate” both parties and he can follow and influence the “conversation”. The MitM attack can also be done between browser and internet, for example, or between a Wi-Fi hotspot and an internet user.
