Next Hop Resolution Protocol (NHRP) is intended for improving the routing efficiency over Non-Broadcast, Multi-Access (NBMA) networks. NHRP allows a source station (a host or router) to determine the internetworking layer address and NBMA subnetwork addresses of the "NBMA next hop" towards a destination station. Codenomicon NHRP Test Tool is intended to scourge NHRP implementations for any security-related robustness flaws, thus dramatically improving the reliability and dependability of global communication networks.
