ARP spoofing attack, one of the most important security topics, is usually taught in courses such as Intrusion Detection in Local Area Networks (LANs). In such a course, hands-on labs are very important as they facilitate students' learning on how to detect ARP spoofing using various types of security solutions, such as Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS). The preparation of these hands-on labs are usually the task of Security Instructors who are required to select and use efficient security solutions for their hands-on experiments; the problem that presents itself is that most of these security instructors lack the sufficient hands-on experience and skills.
