Senior Project Topic Related to Networking


Hi,

I'm going to start my senior master project from next semester. I have been searching to find a good topic related to networking software. First I came accrooss Asterisk telephony, VoIP engine and tried to create some web based application using it, but I thought it wasn't a good idea for a senior project. I have had experience of socket programming in c++ and I'm familiar with basic network protocols such as TCP/IP, HTTP, SSL, SSH, IPsec, bittorrent, etc.

Recentely, I've been working on designing web applications, That's why I have been away from networking world for a while. I thought it would be a good idea to come here and ask networking experts in this site about future of networking and hot topics related to networking.

I really appreciate if you let me know about hot topics in networking so that I can find a good topic for my project.

Thanks in advance.

You might want to look at iSCSI for network storage. It is relatively new in the world of Storage and Networking.

I would love to have a Linux utility which would (reliably and consistently) do the following:
  • Search for hot spots and automatically connect using a list of specified priorities
  • If no previously configured hotspot were found, it would then automatically find one with no key and attempt to connect.
  • It would remember the MAC addresses of all successfull connections--to make the search process more efficient and also to build a database.
  • All of this behavior would be totally configurable and would happen in the background during bootup. The user would be greeted with either a successful connection or the report that none could be found.

I don't know if this qualifies as a project for your school...

well i think that your 2nd point makes your requirements somewhat lethal... but in general that's just NetworkManager... already exists mate...

If you wanted to expand on a project like NetworkManager though, the wired side of that *really* needs some work... some actual configuration options would be a start, for example control of user experience things like accepting DHCP provided name servers or not.

Thanks. iSCSI sounds very interesting. I read about it in wikipedia. I need to read more about it to become familiar with it.
