Readers Respond: Good (and Bad) Student Projects in Computer Networking

Responses: 26


Are you a student looking for ideas on computer networking term projects? An instructor looking for suggestions to offer their class? School projects in networking may involve areas like
  • design - determining optimal configurations and tuning for different types of networks
  • performance - measuring network speed under varying conditions
  • security - assessing the effectiveness of techniques to protect networks from attack
Some projects seem like good ideas at the time but turn out later to be a disaster. Share your suggestions for any student projects you recommend avoiding as well as those you think are worthwhile. Share Your Ideas

Security advice of hackers

I thought that if we meet a great hacker, we can secure our email, web site, social accounts, etc. Because hackers know how to hack email, for example, they also know how to save email accounts from hackers. So my dear friends if you meet any hacker, try to learn from them for security purposes (but don't learn how to hack an account).
