What is MITM Attack?
MITM is also called Man in the middle attack. Friends, this attack of hackers is called Middle Man Attack, someone means a person in the middle. The work of this attack is similar. In this hacking technique, a black hat hacker is sitting between two people and accessing the data of both the people before them, then reading the draft and changing it, then sending it to the next person. A man in the middle attack allows a malicious actor to intercept, send and receive data meant for someone else, or not meant to be sent at all, without either outside party knowing until it is too late. Suppose a hacker needs your bank’s confidential information, then he can easily get that information from man using these middle attack. You will not notice that when you have handed over your bank account information to a hacker with your own hands.

How can you protect the man in the middle attack?
Encryption secures our data to a great extent. Because if we encrypt a document, file, picture, or any type of data, then it changes into a computer language (binary language). Meaning if any of the decryption is opened to him, then it will be visible in both digits 0 and 1, which can be understood only by the computer, not the person.
Mutual Authentication :
If you want the hacker to not read or change your message then you can use the manual authentication. With this you will share whatever data you share with others, they will only see you both.
Just like encryption, digital signature is a great way to keep your data safe .You can create your digital signature from any trusted third party site. For this, you will need to scan the retina and fingerprint which will act as a digital signature.
If your data is not so secret then you can just keep it safe by putting a password. Because in most cases the middle man is attacked when the data is quite secret or appropriate.
Be Sure Before Clicking:
If you come to email or text messages from any company or site first, then after the fact that something like this has happened and the message has come from the real company, it is only after getting the full information that the link is opened.If you also suspect that email is spam, then do not open that link and do not share your intelligence passwords with anyone.
