Outline for Programming Project

Chris Palmer


To create two programs, one of which examines the network traffic and details who has been communicating with whom, and how often. The second program will create a logical map of who is on the network and how they are connected to one another.

Details: The first program (I'm calling it a sniffer) will examine data from TCPDUMP and give the relevent information to the user on a webpage. Right now, it appears as just a list, but if I have time I'd like to research how to make nifty graphics and do so.
The second program (mapper) will use SNMP to figure out the information required and will also display it's output on a webpage, hopefully in a graphical format.
