Package: base/protocols/dhcp

Support for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) analysis.



Types, errors, and fields for analyzing DHCP data. A helper file for DHCP analysis scripts.


Analyzes DHCP traffic in order to log DHCP leases given to clients. This script ignores large swaths of the protocol, since it is rather noisy on most networks, and focuses on the end-result: assigned leases.

If you’d like to track known DHCP devices and to log the hostname supplied by the client, see policy/protocols/dhcp/known-devices-and-hostnames.bro.


Utilities specific for DHCP processing.
