Legitimate usage[edit]

I would highly encourage any editors wishing to expand this article to expand the Legitimate usage section first. ARP spoofing isn't just for script kiddies. --huwr 00:46, 24 September 2005 (UTC)

I've added some citations and what I believe to be clearer language to this section. However, I can't find any evidence that it is used to redirect clients to authentication pages (see Captive Portal for a description of how this is normally achieved), so I've removed a paragraph. It's been marked as 'citation needed' since May of 2011 and what few references I can find were vague enough to have almost certainly been based on this article. 82.35.189.188 (talk) 11:10, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Layout[edit]

The ARP Detection section should be split into two sections, detection and prevention. These are two different types of technological responses, and should be separated. BruceBarnett (talk) 15:55, 20 February 2012 (UTC)

Technical discription[edit]

If it is would be good (and I'm not sure if it would be), I'd be happy to contribute a technical description of the how and why of ARP poisoning. I would try to make it accessible to everyone, but it would necessarily use many technical terms. If a more experienced member could give me a yes or no answer, I'd be happy to get on it. --Dsg123456789 00:45, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Well, we would need a reliable source for the article. If you draw up a White Paper, or something similar, then we can reference it. Sephiroth storm (talk) 17:41, 25 February 2009 (UTC)

I am very interested in who first documented this class of attack. Such information would be very useful to security researchers looking to use Wikipedia for citation information. --69.110.151.125 23:56, 25 March 2007 (UTC)

ARP flooding[edit]

I can't find a good reference but I believe that ARP flooding is a synonym. If someone could confirm that I'd appreciate it. I do know that ARP flooding is not a synonym for MAC flooding so I've already pointed redirects here instead. --Kvng (talk) 03:54, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

ARP Defenses section[edit]

Some Computer Internet Security suites have ARP spoofing block feature. An example would be rising internet security, which I have. It has intercepted ARP spoofing attempts and blocked it. I am sure various other security suites and firewalls, would have ARP spoofing blocking capabilities too. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Internetuser4529 (talkcontribs) 18:00, 28 March 2012 (UTC)

Comodo Firewall includes anti-ARP spoofing technology, although it can sometimes block legitimate traffic, too. 161.31.138.177 (talk) 20:11, 8 December 2013 (UTC)
