Quick Thank you


Well havent had a chance to post in a while due to working on my little project. As some of you know Ive been working on my MSc dissertation --- Creating a Secure Linux based E-Commerce solution.

Ive just about finished it know and thought Id thank everyone for any answers/help they gave me during the course of the project (especially when trying to chroot Apache 2.0, SSL and PHP and get it to communicate with MySQL).

So thanks all

Dai

Actually yes.

I was considering setting up VPN's, configuring cisco routers with differrent routing protocols (to see its affect on the route taken by the vpn connection) and comparing differrent types e.g. PPTP without IPSec with IPSec. IPsec alone L2TP etc.

Suppose you could do something similar and include a comparison of IP V4 and Ip V6 in terms of Ip address availability and usage.

Hope it helps you a bit mate.

yeah, i think so. mine's only a BSc dissertation though, so probably a bit of a lower level than your's. However, the IPv4/IPv6 comparison thing interests me, the only problem is that i need to find something that hasn't really been done before! lol

thanks for ur help though!!

No probs mate. If you need to bounce any ideas off me or something just post back. If you end up doing any security related stuff I can reccommend a library full of books aswell so good luck.

Well to write a shopping Basket I would reccommend using php.

Take a browse arond the net for some sites with tutorials etc.

I'd also reccommend the O'Reilly book Creating Web Database Applications as this illustrates (using the example of a Wine store) How to write a full E-Commenrce Website including a Shopping Basket....

This Would help you out with both php and MySQL.

I hope this helps.
