ICMP based attacks

Project Scope:

The project is to demonstrate and study on how ICMP protocol is used for attacks on a network infrastructure.
A networking lab is created specifically to demonstrate attacks. and how a defense mechanism can be designed
for these attacks. Network Security tools like nmap, scapy etc is used for the same


1. PC ( 2nos)
2. Switch


1. nmap
2. Scapy

How to implement

Understand the type of ICMP based attacks by researching the internet and books. Setup a lab with the two PCs connected to the switch. Use nmap and Scapy to craft custom packets and send it out on the network and test if intended attack is generated. Document the defense mechanisms which are available for the same.
