Configuring ARP packet source MAC consistency
check
This feature enables a gateway to filter out ARP packets whose source MAC address in the Ethernet
header is different from the sender MAC address in the message body, so that the gateway can learn
correct ARP entries.
To enable ARP packet source MAC address consistency check:
Step
1.
Enter system view.
2.
Enable ARP packet source MAC address
consistency check.

Configuring ARP active acknowledgement

Configure this feature on gateway devices to prevent user spoofing.
ARP active acknowledgement prevents a gateway from generating incorrect ARP entries. For more
information about its working mechanism, see ARP Attack Protection Technology White Paper.
To configure ARP active acknowledgement:
Step
1.
Enter system view.
2.
Enable the ARP active
acknowledgement function.

Configuring ARP detection

ARP detection enables access devices to block ARP packets from unauthorized clients to prevent user
spoofing and gateway spoofing attacks. ARP detection does not check ARP packets received from ARP
trusted ports.
ARP detection provides the user validity check and ARP packet validity check functions.
If both ARP packet validity check and user validity check are enabled, the former one applies first, and
then the latter applies.

Configuring user validity check

Upon receiving an ARP packet from an ARP untrusted interface, the device compares the sender IP and
MAC addresses against the static IP source guard binding entries and the DHCP snooping entries. If a
match is found from those entries, the ARP packet is considered valid and is forwarded. If no match is
found, the ARP packet is considered invalid and is discarded.
