Winter Break Projects

Ricky B. on Friday, 09 January 2015. Posted in Vacation / Break

During my winter break away from RIT I've kept busy working on numerous projects mostly related to cyber security and information assurance:

  • Wired ethernet cable from my router to a new network closet and added a switch
  • Installed a RADIUS server for wireless network authentication and auditing and added a Samba server to my home network
  • Started the Matasano Crypto Challenges
  • Start the Coursera Cryptography I course
  • Wrote a small script to email me cyber security news each day
  • Worked on a handful of projects for Symantec where I work part-time as a contractor including programs to aid in detection of domains associated with malware and botnets
  • Reviewed and read information about network protocols

It's been great to be able to see my family and friends and have more free time to spend on topics that I am interested in.
