Discover the definition of the term Spoofing presented by Les Assises de la Cybersécurité.


In cybersecurity, the term spoofing is used to refer to imitating the source of a message (email, SMS) or a connection (IP address). There are different methods for this, but they all have in common that they exploit the fact that the protocols on which the messages in question are based were not designed to guarantee the authentication of the sources. New protocols, or developments of existing ones, are now trying to take this threat into account through cryptographic authentication processes.
