    Question sniffer over switcher network!!!

    Hy.

    I have the following question:
    is it possible to sniff the packets over a local area network, LAN that's implemented using a switch (not a hub)?

    If yes, than what security measures can i keep in mind?
    If no, than everything is ok.
