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.
