This is a type of security breach where a person injects themselves between the user and the entity the user is trying to communicate with on the network. The person then has the ability to intercept and read traffic or send false information on to the destination. To guard against this type of attack, we strongly recommend that you use an Ethernet crossover cable to directly connect MAP Gateway to your computer when transferring keys to the device. This setup creates a network of two and makes a man-in-the-middle attack improbable.
