Tool and Usage

ArpON is a host-based tool to improve the security of the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP).

The tool works by using three types of inspection to detect a related attack.

  • SARPI (Static ARP Inspection), statically configured networks (without DHCP)
  • DARPI (Dynamic ARP Inspection), dynamically configured networks (with DHCP)
  • HARPI (Hybrid ARP Inspection), statically and dynamically configured networks (with DHCP)

Usage and audience

This tool is categorized as a Linux security defense tool and MitM protection tool.
