Configuring a Policy to Filter IGMP Query Messages

Configuring a Policy to Filter IGMP Query Messages


If an attacker sends Query messages with a smaller IP address than the real IGMP querier on the network, switches running IGMP snooping consider the attacker as a querier and forward IGMP Membership Report messages to the attacker. In this case, multicast traffic cannot be forwarded correctly. You can configure an IGMP Query message filtering policy to defend against such attacks. An IGMP Query message filtering policy permits only IGMP Query messages with specified source IP addresses and rejects other IGMP Query messages. This improves security of a Layer 2 multicast network.

An IGMP Query message filtering policy must reference an access control list (ACL). IGMP Query messages are accepted only when their source IP addresses are permitted by the referenced ACL (within the address range following permit in the ACL rule). For details about ACL configuration, see "ACL Configuration" in the CloudEngine 12800 and 12800E Series Switches Configuration Guide - Security.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run vlan vlan-id

    The VLAN view is displayed.

  3. Run igmp snooping query ip-source-policy { acl-number | acl-name acl-name }

    An IGMP Query message filtering policy is configured.

    By default, no IGMP Query message filtering policy is configured in a VLAN.

  4. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
