Security+ Key Point

If you’re planning to take the Security+ exam, you might like to remember this key point. 

An on-path attack (also known as a man-in-the-middle or man-in-the browser attack) is a form of active eavesdropping. It captures data from two other computers in a session. When secure channels are used, the on-path system may use certificates that aren’t issued by a CA and will generate certificate warnings. SSH gives a warning if previously established keys have changed.

This is one of the Remember This blocks from the CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-601 Study Guide. As a study habit, I encourage readers to repeat these key points to themselves as often as possible. The more you repeat the information, the more likely you are to remember it when you take the exam.

The CompTIA Security+: Get Certified Get Ahead: SY0-601 Study Guide provides additional information needed to fully understand this key point.
