 Passive Network Traffic Analysis

Security Focus tells us about Passive Network Traffic Analysis.

"Through passive monitoring, a security admin can gain a thorough understanding of the network's topology: what services are available, what operating systems are in use, and what vulnerabilities may be exposed on the network. Much of this data can be gathered in an automated, non-intrusive manner through the use of standard tools, which will be discussed later in this article."
