MITM (Man-In-The-Middle) Attack

A MITM attack is a cyberattack where a cybercriminal secretly inserts themselves in the middle of a data stream, relaying data between two parties and listening and possibly altering the communications.

The attacker may simply spy on the private conversation intercepting sensitive information, altering messages, or inserting new ones.

Properly certificated, authenticated, and TLS encrypted communications are required to prevent MITM attacks.
