Scenario: no router, just a laptop network card turned in monitor mode. (imagine you are in the bus or train)
In this scenario can I see all the data that is going through air around me?
Can I capture this data?
Can I get some relevant info out of this data? (e.g. source and destination of the packets)
Can I sniff the traffic of other networks (other routers around me, and smarthphones) and get some relevant info?
what can I see? I should at least see the source and destination IP, but can I get some info our of this packets or the packets are totally encrypted?
This scenario is monitor mode? promiscuous would be when I am actually connected to the network I am sniffing? or do I miss something?
