What is the purpose of DHCP snooping?

  • Ensures devices are configured for automatic IP address assignment
  • Prevents unauthorized DHCP servers
  • Prevents DHCP messages from going across a trunk
  • Prevents DHCP messages from being sent to another network

Explanation: When DHCP snooping is configured, switch ports are configured as either a trusted port or an untrusted port. A device connected to a trusted port can send any type of DHCP message into the switch. An untrusted port only allows incoming DHCP requests.
