A Client/Server Based Mechanism to Prevent ARP Spoofing Attacks
Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is the network part that is responsible for identifying a Media Access Control (MAC) address of each other, through mapping an IP address to the corresponding MAC address. Unfortunately, ARP is a stateless protocol, the weakness in ARP effects directly on the security standards of the network and especially in Ethernet. In this paper, we propose a new architecture; named a CSIDS Client/Server based Intrusion Detection System designed to detection and defense against ARP spoofing attacks. The main idea behind this approach is to implement a real-time analyzing for received ARP packets and in case of detection a suspicious ARP packet a resolution message will be exchanged between system parts on the same network. This system is resilience by making at most two objects (client/server) to work efficiently; on the other hand, just one client is capable of defending on himself.
