What network attack seeks to create a DoS for clients by preventing them from being able to obtain a DHCP lease?
- CAM table attack
- IP address spoofing
- DHCP spoofing
- DHCP starvation
DCHP starvation attacks are launched by an attacker with the intent to create a DoS for DHCP clients. To accomplish this goal, the attacker uses a tool that sends many DHCPDISCOVER messages in order to lease the entire pool of available IP addresses, thus denying them to legitimate hosts.
