In today’s world, securing devices from Malwares is a big concern. Even though IDS (Intrusion detection
systems) are in place, it is hard to eliminate malwares completely in a network. A vulnerable device in a
network can be attacked by a malware which can act as rogue DHCP server. It can move connected print
device(s) out of network.
This paper proposes a solution to handle rogue DHCP server and protect printers from simulated DHCP
servers by malwares or misbehaving DHCP servers. Our idea is to implement a mechanism in printers
which will provide an ability to protect themselves from rogue server(s) present in network.
