Neighbor Discovery Protocol (NDP) is an essential protocol in IPv6 suite, but it is known to be vulnerable to critical attacks. Thus, SEcure Neighbor Discovery (SEND) is proposed to counter NDP security threats. Unfortunately, operating systems lack the sophisticated implementations for SEND. There is limited success with SEND implementation for Linux and BSD, and no implementation for Windows families. Therefore, the majority of the users are not secured with SEND. In this paper, the authors will introduce an implementation of SEND for Windows families (WinSEND). WinSEND is a user-space application which provides the protection for NDP in Windows.
