Tool and Usage
SCUTUM is a security tool for Linux systems to filter network traffic. With this firewall functionality, it can allow only whitelisted network gateways.
Why this tool?
The primary goal of this solution is to prevent ARP spoofing by other computers on the local network. It uses a whitelist and blocks all other systems sending possible malicious ARP requests (e.g. with spoofing attack).
