Voice Interfacing and Control of

Smart Home Networks

Jan - May 2020

Our daily lives are being transformed by a plethora of new technologies that not only help devices perform household tasks, but also anticipate them. One of the greatest enablers in this transformation is the concept of the Internet of Things or IoT, where everyday appliances have the ability to communicate with each other over the internet. Smart Home Automation is a concept where these IoT enablers are used to make everyday tasks easy to carry out. It is not only a means of easy interaction with appliances and devices but is also a natural extension of human behaviour that infers the user’s intentions and performs tasks without the user’s intervention. The ability to use natural language to interact with the home network is key to realizing an easy to use and intuitive solution. In this project, we attempt to unify the seemingly fragmented landscape and demonstrate a fully scalable, platform-agnostic home automation architecture that minimizes cost allows for interoperability and is secure by design.

Mitigating DDoS Attacks using Honeypots

Jan - May 2020

DDoS mitigation refers to the process of successfully protecting a targeted server or network from a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. By utilizing specially designed network equipment or a cloud-based protection service, a targeted victim is able to mitigate the incoming threat.

Students in this project have implemented a honeypot and simulate in real-time, the mitigation of a to-scale DDoS attack.
