The Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) is a computer networking protocol for determining a network host's Link Layer address when only its Internet Layer (IP) or Network Layer address is known. Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) spoofing is a technique used to attack an Ethernet wired or wireless network. It is also known as ARP flooding, ARP poisoning or ARP Poison Routing (APR). ARP Spoofing may allow an attacker to sniff data frames on a Local Area Network (LAN), modify the traffic, or stop the traffic altogether. The principle of ARP spoofing is to send fake, or "Spoofed", ARP messages to an Ethernet LAN.
