VLAN hopping or double tagging using “Yersinia”

Here an example in Video of “VLAN hopping” or “double tagging” using Linux tool “yersinia”.

Some recommendation to mitigate the threat of “VLAN hopping”
– Clear Native VLAN from All .1q Trunk.
– Put unused port into unused VLAN.
– Shutdown unused port.
– Configure user ports as static access.
– Filter tagged traffic entering access ports.
– Set native VLAN an unused VLAN.
– Do not use Default Native VLAN = 1.

    There is a typo in the title: VLAN hopping or double tagging using “YersiAnia”

      Hi Natasha,
      Thank you for the precision, as much as “Yersinia” is not “YersiAnia” which is certainly not “MasiAnia” :-p she is funny for sure, but not a “geek” as much as I know 🙂

    Hi A.J,

    Really impressive and detailed information. A great resource for Networking guys. I have very recently launched a web site “http://www.networkers-google.com” to share practical experiences or lab notes which may not be documented anywhere. Appreciate your support to share anything in your experience which will help others.

    Just one question, I am admiring your diagrams and I just need to know are you using Visio? If so, what version? I really like your diagrams and they are very easy to read.
