ARP Cheat attack

Hi
   What is ARP cheat attack and how can we detect / defend the same ? I want to write one program for the same. I will get the packet data as input and have to check if ARP cheat happens and defend it.
   The logic for defending the ARP cheat is preferred.
Thank You in advance...

Dear Krishnan,

I am not really sure what an "ARP Cheat attack" is, and not much about such on the Internet either, e.g. one page I do find is
http://wiki.bitcomet.com/BitComet_Options

Most like what is meant by "ARP Cheat attack" is ARP spoofing (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARP_spoofing) or man-in-the-middle attacks through ARP spoofing (e.g. http://www.osischool.com/protocol/arp/arp-spoofing/).

Where did you find the term "ARP Cheat attack" in the first place?

Kind regards,
Soren
