avoid the Man In The Middle through ARP Spoofing | ArpON 2.2 released
ArpON (ARP handler inspection) is a portable handler daemon that make ARP secure in order to avoid the Man In The Middle (MITM) through ARP Spoofing/Poisoning attacks. It detects and blocks also derived attacks by it for more complex attacks, as: DHCP Spoofing, DNS Spoofing, WEB Spoofing, Session Hijacking and SSL/TLS Hijacking & co attacks.
This is possible using three kinds of anti ARP Poisoning tecniques: the first is based on SARPI or "Static ARP Inspection" in statically configured networks without DHCP; the second on DARPI or "Dynamic ARP Inspection" in dinamically configured networks having DHCP; the third on HARPI or "Hybrid ARP Inspection" in "hybrid" networks, that is in statically and dynamically (DHCP) configured networks together.
SARPI, DARPI and HARPI protects both unidirectional, bidirectional and distributed attacks: into "Unidirectional protection" is required that ArpON is installed and running on one node of the connection attacked; into "Bidirectional protection" is required that ArpON is installed and running on two nodes of the connection attacked; into "Distributed protection" is required that ArpON is installed and running on all nodes of the connections attacked. All other nodes whitout ArpON will not be protected from attack.
ArpON is therefore a host-based solution that doesn't modify ARP's standard base protocol, but rather sets precise policies by using SARPI for static networks, DARPI for dynamic networks and HARPI for hybrid networks thus making today's standardized protocol working and secure from any foreign intrusion.
