Wall Of Sheep

 

The Wall of Sheep is an interactive demonstration of what can happen when network users let their guard down. We passively observe the traffic on a network, looking for evidence of users logging into email, web sites, or other network services without the protection of encryption. Those we find get a good-natured reminder how to use free, easy-to-use tools to prevent leaks in the future.
