Prevents unauthorized usage of IP addresses
'IP Sentinel' is a tool that tries to prevent unauthorized usage of IP addresses within an ethernet broadcast domain by answering ARP requests. After receiving faked replies, requesting parties store the MAC in their ARP tables and will send future packets to this invalid MAC, rendering the IP unreachable.
