Student thesis: Master's Thesis


With the proliferation of handheld mobile devices nowadays users expect to be able to access the Internet and its services anytime and anywhere Consequently Wi-Fi networks have become ubiquitous However most Wi-Fi APs are not encrypted with the result that malicious users can easily hijack the network for their own nefarious purposes ARP spoofing is a particularly common form of attack in which a malicious actor impersonates a legitimate user in order to facilitate further illegitimate activities such as man-in-the-middle attacks denial of service attacks session hijacking and so on To combat the threat posed by such attacks this thesis proposes a lightweight ARP spoofing detection mechanism based on the ARP and ICMP replies in a WLAN network and implements ARP Spoofing to proof the correctness
