Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

This network is now mine

Networks are all around us, but are they secure? The answer is no. With this project we will be building a Rogue Access Point in a network we control in order to learn more about Computer Networks, how they are set up, how they work and why they are not secure. We will then come up with ways of how to make them secure, implement and test them.

From "Hello World" to "PWNed"

Teaching Programming can be easy and fun. With this project I aim to introduce students to computer programming through Python and various cool hacking projects that will get them started with programming, teach them about how computers works, and introductory cybersecurity and hacking. By the end of the project the students will be proficient in using the Linux terminal, scripting and building tooling that will help them progress in the future.

Let's hack some hardware

With this project students will become familiar with basic hardware hacking through fault injection. They will also learn about basic electrical engineering and computer architecture.

IoT 101

Students will be introduced to IoT programming, how to work with hardware. At the end they will come up with an IoT device project and build it.

Security Literature Review

If you are interested in security and want to learn more about a specific area, I will guide you through how to perform research in this field. By the end, you will pick a topic, and perform a research literature review on it.
