Event details

Implementing an intrusion detection and prevention system using Software-Defined Networking: Defending against ARP spoofing attacks and Blacklisted MAC Addresses

This work focuses on infiltration methods, such as Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) spoofing. We developed a Software-Defined Networking (SDN)-based Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS). Bespoke software was written to conduct the attack tests and customise the IDPS, this was coupled to a specifically developed library to validate user input. Improvements were made to SDN in the areas of attack detection, firewall, intrusion prevention, packet dropping and shorter timeouts. Our extensive experimental results show that the developed solution quickly responds to intrusion attempts - measured detection and mitigation times are in the order of a few seconds.
