  • We propose an integrated approach to protect from address spoofing for both IPv6 and Layer-2 addresses, and from address resolution attacks. The proposed approach is an extension to the FCFS SAVI specification, and relies on the inspection and generation of standard Neighbor Solicitation messages. It does not require host modification and manual configuration is only needed to indicate the ports to which routers connect.
