Abstract

Network security is very important task in today’s life. Basic task of it is to providing the access rights to
legitimate users and monitoring the activities of network. One of the network protocol is address resolution protocol
(ARP). It maps the IP address to its corresponding MAC address. But the problem of this is that it is stateless protocol
in ARP Poisoning attacker sends fake ARP messages on LAN, so it can gain the access and after getting access it may
intercept data frames on network, modify traffic or stop the traffic. ARP Poisoning attack is the gateway for DoS
attack, MITM attack and session hijacking attack. So there is the need of some unique solution which can overcome
the problems of ARP Poisoning attacks.
