Network Security Projects for students

The following are some network security projects for students. There are configuration based projects which can be done using tools like packet tracer, security monitoring projects using tools like nmap, wireshark and programming projects.

1. Network Design for hosting company with DDOS protection

This is a configuration related project which can be done using packet tracer. This project understands how to setup a network for a web hosting company with multiple servers . The servers has to be setup on the internet with protection from DDOS attacks. The components required to setup the network, along with configuration details are provided in the report.

Check out the details of the project and the report here – Network design for hosting company with DDOS protection

2. Rogue DHCP server detection

This is a security monitoring project. NMAP, which is a network scanning tool is used to scan the network to detect rogue DHCP servers. NMAP script and how it works is detailed in the project. Check out the details of the project and the report here- Rogue DHCP server detection

3. Datacenter security design proposal

This is a configuration related project which can be done using packet tracer. The project is to design and implement security on a data center. The datacenter has 3 servers , each of which hosts different applications. The security of the network along with the configuration is detailed in the report. Check out the details of the project and the report here- Data center security design proposal

4. Flooding attack detection using anomaly techniques with wireshark

This is a network security monitoring project which is performed using wireshark. This project demonstrates how a ping flood attack works, how it can be detected and captured using wireshark. Check out the details of the project and the report here- Flooding attack detection using anomaly techniques with wireshark

5. DMZ Network Design with Cisco Routers

This is a configuration related project which can be done using packet tracer. DMZ stands for De-Militarized Zone. This project demonstrates along with the confiuration as to how a DMZ can be setup and designed for various networking applications like FTP, DNS , SSL etc. The configurations which are required to setup a DMZ on Cisco routers are understood. Check out the details of the project and the report here- DMZ network design with Cisco routers

6. IP Spoofing attack demonstration

This is a programming project which is performed using Scapy framework. IP spoofing is a type of network security attack. This project demonstrates the working for IP spoofing attack, how it works along with the source code.

Check out the details of the project and the report here-IP Spoofing demonstration
