Information About IP Source Guard
IP Source Guard (IPSG) is a Layer 2 security feature in the Cisco Catalyst 9800 Series Wireless Controller . It supports both IPv4 and IPv6 wireless clients.
The IPSG feature prevents the wireless controller from forwarding the packets, with the source IP addresses that are not known to it. This security feature is not enabled by default and has to be explicitly configured. It is enabled on a per WLAN basis, and all the wireless clients joining that WLAN inherits this feature.
The wireless controller maintains an IP/MAC pair binding table for the IPSG feature. Using this table, the wireless controller keeps track of IP and MAC address combination (binding) information for all the wireless clients. This binding information is captured as part of the IP learning process. When the feature is enabled on a WLAN, the wireless controller forwards the incoming packets (from the wireless clients) only if it finds a matching binding table entry corresponding to the source IP and MAC address combination of those packets. Otherwise, the packets are dropped.
