What are replay attacks? Give an example of replay attackReplay attacks are the network attacks in which an attacker spies the conversation between the sender and receiver and takes the authenticated information e.g. sharing key and then contact to the receiver with that key. In Replay attack the attacker gives the proof of his identity and authenticity.
Example:
Suppose in the communication of two parties A and B; A is sharing his key to B to prove his identity but in the meanwhile Attacker C eavesdrop the conversation between them and keeps the information which are needed to prove his identity to B. Later C contacts to B and prove its authenticity.
