DHCP

Hi,

Advantages:

lack of administrative overhead and less errors.

dynamic provisioning of IPs with short leases for machines which are not connected on the network for long periods

Roaming for wireless devices

dynamic turnover of short finite pool of IPs when there is more hosts than IPs

Disadvantages:

any machine connected to the network can receive an IP

Could be subject to DoS attack and rogue DHCP service for MiTM attacks

Discovers and offers are broadcasts( but offers can be unicast also)

Alain.
