The Address resolution protocol is the protocol is used to map the Internet Protocol (IP) address into the hardware address (MAC).When the host machine wants to know a physical address for any host in the network, it broadcasts the ARP request and the host that owns the IP address sends the unicast ARP reply message to indicating its MAC address. Each host machine maintains a table called ARP cache, used to convert IP addresses into MAC addresses There are many security threats in the ARP which leads the user to unsecure communication because ARP is the stateless protocol, every time a host gets an ARP reply from another host.
