Wireless Network Security – Bluetooth Vulnerabilities (Group Project)
• Researched and demonstrated the ability for Bluetooth enabled phones to be exploited through packet insertion and
social engineering attacks. Used of the “Bluetooth gun” to demonstrate the ability to detect open Bluetooth
connections up to 250 feet away

Introduction to Systems Administration – Network Setup

• Implemented a mixed Windows/Linux based network environment including a DNS server running Active
Directory, DHCP server, and multiple connected clients.

Enterprise Security – Risk Assessment

• Researched the ability for security professionals to evaluate the most risk prone areas of business and calculate the
potential loss and risk of lost information using the Octave Allegro Risk Assessment model.

Network Management – Network Management Protocols (Partner Project)

• Demonstrated the ability to implement Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) in a local area network
environment. SNMP was enabled, configured and polled with Cisco and Extreme Networks brand switches and
• Researched the effect on network performance by the implementation of spanning tree protocol.
• Demonstrated the effect on network performance by the implementation of RIP with large numbers of routing tables
in multiple local area network environments.

Network Design and Performance – LAN and WAN implementation (Group Project)
• Researched the implementation of different sized networks, based on requirements given from businesses looking to
expand current networks. LAN implementation was within two buildings containing 4 classrooms and 4 offices.
WAN implementation was between three separate offices throughout the United States. All research including the
equipment needed, pricing, purchasing and implementation were done within groups and reported as theoretical
• Researched the General Dynamics Sectera Edge Secure Smart Phone and its ability to be implemented in a secure
office environment.

• Researched the foundations for routing protocols and their implementation in standard LAN environments as well as
sensor networks. Specific protocols include EGP and GPSR for LAN and sensor networks, respectively.

Thesis – Covert Channels within Voice of IP

• Currently researching the ability for the Session Initiation Protocol and Session Description Protocol to be modified
to carry covert messages which could only be seen and understood by two agreeing parties able to view the packets
on their respective ends. A discussion of Covert Channels, Steganography, Entropy and modification of a packet
capture tool to detect covert channels will be part of the project write-up.
