The HP FlexFabric Switch must have Dynamic ARP Inspection (DAI) enabled on all user VLANs.


Finding ID Version Rule ID IA Controls Severity
V-66075 HFFS-L2-000016 SV-80565r1_rule Medium
DAI intercepts Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) requests and verifies that each of these packets has a valid IP-to-MAC address binding before updating the local ARP cache and before forwarding the packet to the appropriate destination. Invalid ARP packets are dropped and logged. DAI determines the validity of an ARP packet based on valid IP-to-MAC address bindings stored in the DHCP snooping binding database. If the ARP packet is received on a trusted interface, the switch forwards the packet without any checks. On untrusted interfaces, the switch forwards the packet only if it is valid.
