I have mirrored a port (Summit series) in my system network for packet sniffing using a desktop which is connected to internet. My system network is physically and logically segregated from Internet apart from the mirrored port. Can a hacker access my System Network through mirrored port
Hello, in Theory it could be possible as your windows PC still listens on that port to all packets. Every mirrored packet enters your desktop so if a hacker can craft a packet that your laptop will send to its CPU it could gain access. Best practise is to disable the IP stack (ipv4 and ipv6) on that port.
