This article shows the procedure to execute an ARP poisoning in order to stand out the insecurity that the Protocol has, and to compare it against other alternatives, to show the safety of each of these. Where it is concluded that ES-ARP and S-ARP are good choices to improve the safety of the ARP protocol, although is not 100 % secure, since if they send the answer and then the poisoned ARP reply is sent before the actual one is received, and set on the cache memory, the victim stores the wrong response in the cache and discards the actual one. When the first ARP request is sent, the victim and the attacker receive the message. Who comes first will get the ARP cache of the victim.
