Definition Edit

Promiscuous mode (or promisc mode) is a mode of operation for network interface devices that allows the computer to which the device is attached to monitor all data packets passing through that device, rather than only those addressed to that computer. It is therefore possible, in promiscuous mode, for a computer to “eavesdrop” on all data passing through a network.
