Background: In passive packet sniffing, no packet will be generated by the sniffer utility. Packets are simply gathered up by the tool; it acts as a network probe/snoop, analyzing and capturing the traffic without intercepting or altering it. An active sniffer, on the other hand, will create and send spoofed packets as a means to manipulate switches into treating the false MAC address as if it were genuine. Active sniffers also capture packets. Any sniffing that takes place on a network using switches will by definition fall under the active sniffing category.
