Role of honeypots and honey nets in network security

Network Security has become essential nowadays and there is a need for setting up robust mechanisms to maintain confidentiality and integrity (Feng et al., 2023). Due to the number of security mechanisms available, organizations found it hard to finalize and implement them on their network. For example, honey pots and honeynet approaches look almost the same and have the same purpose but work differently. Under this research topic, the configuration of honeynets and honeypots can be done to check which one can perform better security in terms of trapping cyber attackers. The entire implementation can be carried out in the cloud-based instance for improved security and it can be identified which type of honey pot technology must be preferred (Maesschalck et al., 2022).

  • To set up a honey pot system using Open Canary on the virtual instance to protect against cyber attackers.
  • To set up a honeynet system on the virtual instance to assure protection is provided against malicious attackers.
  • To test honeypots and honeynets by executing DDoS attacks to check which can provide better security.

RQ1: Why is there a need for using honeypots over honey pots in a production networked environment?

RQ2: What are the differences between cloud-based and local honey pot systems for endpoint protection?

This research can be carried out using the quantitative method of research. At the initial stage, the implementation of honeypots and honeypots can be done on the virtual instance following different security rules. Once the rules are applied, the testing can be performed using a Kali Linux machine to check whether honey pots were effective or honeynets (Gill et al., 2020).

How do malware variants are progressively improving?

This research can be based on evaluating how malware variants are progressively improving and what should be its state in the coming future. Malware is able to compromise confidential user’s information assets which is why this research can be based on identifying current and future consequences owing to its improvements (Deng et al., 2023). In this field, there is no research work that has been carried out to identify how malware variants are improving their working and what is expected to see in future. Once the evaluation is done, a clear analysis can also be done on some intelligent preventive measures to deal with dangerous malware variants and prevent any kind of technological exploitation (Tang et al., 2023).

  • To investigate types of malware variants available to learn more about malware's hidden features.
  • To focus on future implications of malware executable programs and how they can be avoided.
  • To discuss intelligent solutions to deal with all malware variants.

RQ1: How do improvements in malware variants impact enterprises?

RQ2: What additional solutions are required to deal with malware variants?

In this research, qualitative analysis can be conducted on malware variants and the main reason behind their increasing severity. The entire research can be completed based on qualitative research methodology to answer defined research questions and objectives. Some real-life case studies should also be integrated into the research which can be supported by the selected topic (Saidia Fasci et al., 2023).

Implementation of IoT - enabled smart office/home using cisco packet tracer

The Internet of Things has gained much more attention over the past few years which is why each enterprise and individual aims at setting up an IoT network to automate their processes (Barriga et al., 2023). This research can be based on designing and implementing an IoT-enabled smart home/office network using Cisco Packet Tracer software. Logical workspace, all network devices, including IoT devices can be used for preparing a logical network star topology (Elias & Ali, 2014). To achieve automation, the use of different IoT rules can be done to allow devices to work based on defined rules.

  • To set up an IoT network on a logical workspace using Cisco Packet Tracer simulation software.
  • To set up IoT-enabled rules on an IoT registration server to achieve automation (Hou et al., 2023).

RQ: Why is the Cisco packet tracer preferred for network simulation over other network simulators?

At the beginning of this research, a quantitative research methodology can be followed where proper experimental set-up can be done. As a packet tracer is to be used, the star topology can be used to interconnect IoT devices, sensors and other network devices at the home/office. Once a placement is done, the configuration should be done using optimal settings and all IoT devices can be connected to the registration server. This server will have IoT rules which can help in achieving automation by automatically turning off lights and fans when no motion is detected (Baggan et al., 2022).

Comparative analysis between AODV, DSDV and DSR routing protocols in WSN networks

For wireless sensor networks (WSN), there is a major need for using WSN routing rather than performing normal routines. As WSN networks are self-configured, there is a need for an optimal routing protocol that can improve network performance in terms of latency, jitter, and packet loss (Luo et al., 2023). There are often various problems faced when WSN networks are set up due to a lack of proper routing protocol selection. As a result of this, severe downtime is faced and all links are not able to communicate with each other easily (Hemanand et al., 2023). In this research topic, the three most widely used WSN routing protocols AODV, DSDV and DSR can be compared based on network performance. To perform analysis, three different scenarios can be created in network simulator 2 (Ns2).

  • To create three different scenarios on ns2 software to simulate a network for 1 to 100 seconds.
  • To analyze which WSN routing is optimal in terms of network performance metrics, including latency, jitter and packet loss.
  • To use CBR and NULL agents for all wireless scenarios to start with simulation purposes.

RQ: How do AODV, DSR and DSDV routing protocols differ from each other in terms of network performance?

This research can be carried out using a quantitative research method. The implementation for the provided research topic can be based on Ns2 simulation software where three different scenarios can be created (AODV, DSDV and DSR). For each scenario, NULL, CSR and UDP agents can be done to start with simulation for almost 1 to 100 seconds. For all transmissions made during the given time, network performance can be checked to determine which routing is best (Mohapatra & Kanungo, 2012).

Securing wireless network using AAA authentication and WLAN controller

Wireless networks often face intrusion attempts due to insecure protocols and sometimes open SSIDs. As a result of this, man-in-the-middle and eavesdropping attacks become easier which results in the loss of confidential information assets (Sivasankari & Kamalakkannan, 2022). When it comes to managing networks in a large area, there are higher chances for attacks that enable cyber attackers in intercepting ongoing communication sessions. However, there is currently no research conducted where the use of AAA authentication has been done with WLAN controllers to make sure a higher level of protection is provided (Nashwan, 2021). The proposed research topic can be based on securing wireless networks with the help of AAA authentication and WLAN controllers. The use of AAA authentication can be done to set up a login portal for users whilst the WLAN controller can be used for managing all wireless access points connected to the network (Nashwan, 2021).

  • To set up AAA authentication service on the wireless network simulated on Cisco Packet Tracer for proper access control.
  • To set up a WLAN controller on the network to manage all wireless access points effortlessly.
  • To use WPA2-PSK protocol on the network to assure guest users are only able to access wireless networks over a secure protocol.

RQ1: What additional benefits are offered by AAA authentication on the WLAN networks?

RQ2: Why are wireless networks more likely to face network intrusions than wired networks?

This research topic is based on the secure implementation of a wireless LAN network using a Cisco packet tracer. Hence, this research can be carried out using a quantitative research method. The implementation can be carried out using AAA authentication which can assure that access control is applied for wireless logins. On the other hand, a WLAN controller can also be configured which can ensure that all WAPs are managed (ZHANG et al., 2012).

OWASP's approach to secure web applications from web application exploits

The research can revolve around the development of web applications by considering OWASP's top 10 rules. Usually, web applications are deployed by organizations depending on their requirements and these applications are vulnerable to various exploits, including injection, broken authentication and other forgery attacks (Poston, 2020). Identifying every single vulnerability is difficult when reference is not taken and often organizations end up hosting a vulnerable server that leads to privacy issues and compromises confidential information easily. In this research, OWASP's top 10 approaches can be followed to develop a secure web application that can be able to protect against top web application exploits. This approach is based on emphasizing severe and minor vulnerabilities which must be patched for protecting against web application attacks (Deepa & Thilagam, 2016).

  • The first objective can be setting up an insecure web application on the cloud environment which can be exploited with different techniques.
  • The second objective can be to consider all techniques and procedures provided by OWASP's top 10 methodologies.
  • The last objective can be applying all fixes to insecure web applications to make them resistant to OWASP top 10 attacks (Sonmez, 2019).

RQ1: What are the benefits of using OWASP's top 10 approaches to harden web applications in comparison to other security approaches?

The research methodology considered for this research project can be quantitative using an experimental approach. The practical work can be done for the selected topic using AWS or the Azure cloud platform. Simply, a virtual web server can be configured and set up with a secure and insecure web application. Following OWASP's top 10 techniques and procedures, the web application can be secured from possible attacks. In addition, insecure applications can also be exploited and results can be evaluated (Applebaum et al., 2021).

Importance of configuring RADIUS (AAA) server on the network

User authentication has become significant nowadays as it guarantees that a legitimate user is accessing the network. But a problem is faced when a particular security control is to be identified for authentication and authorization. These controls can be categorized based on mandatory access controls, role-based access control, setting up captive portals and many more. Despite several other security controls, one of the most efficient ones is the RADIUS server (SONG et al., 2008). This server can authenticate users on the network to make sure network resources are accessible to only legal users. This research topic can be based on understanding the importance of RADIUS servers on the network which can also be demonstrated with the help of the Cisco Packet Tracer. A network can be designed and equipped with a RADIUS server to ensure only legal users can access network resources (WANG et al., 2009).

  • To configure RADIUS (AAA) server on the network which can be able to authenticate users who try to access network resources.
  • To simulate a network on a packet tracer simulation software and verify network connectivity.

RQ1: What are other alternatives to RADIUS (AAA) authentication servers for network security?

RQ2: What are the common and similarities between RADIUS and TACACS+ servers?

As a logical network is to be designed and configured, a quantitative research methodology can be followed. In this research coursework, a secure network design can be done using a packet tracer network simulator, including a RADIUS server along with the DMZ area. The configuration for the RADIUS server can be done to allow users to only access network resources by authenticating and authorizing (Nugroho et al., 2022).

Comparing mod security and pF sense firewall to block illegitimate traffic

Firewalls are primarily used for endpoint security due to their advanced features ranging from blocking to IDS capabilities and many more. It is sometimes challenging to identify which type of firewall is best and due to this reason, agencies end up setting up misconfigured firewalls (Tiwari et al., 2022). This further results in a cyber breach, destroying all business operations. The research can be emphasizing conducting a comparison between the two most widely used firewalls i.e. Mod Security and pF sense. Using a virtualized environment, both firewalls can be configured and tested concerning possible cyber-attacks (Lu & Yang, 2020).

  • To use the local environment to set up Mod security and pF sense firewall with appropriate access control rules.
  • To test both firewalls by executing distributed denial of service attacks from a remote location.
  • To compare which type of firewall can provide improved performance and robust security.

RQ: How do Mod security and pF sense differ from each other in terms of features and performance?

The practical experimentation for both firewalls can be done using a virtualized environment where two different machines can be created. Hence, this research can be carried out using a quantitative research method . The first machine can have Mod security and the second machine can have pF sense configured. A new subnet can be created which can have these two machines. The third machine can be an attacking machine which can be used for testing firewalls. The results obtained can be then evaluated to identify which firewall is best for providing security (Uçtu et al., 2021).

Conducting a comprehensive investigation on the PETYA malware

The main purpose of this research is to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the PETYA malware variant (McIntosh et al., 2021). PETYA often falls under the category of ransomware attacks which not only corrupt and encrypt files but can compromise confidential information easily. Along with PETYA, there are other variants also which lead to a security outage and organizations are not able to detect these variants due to a lack of proper detection capabilities (Singh & Singh, 2021). In this research, a comprehensive analysis has been done on PETYA malware to identify its working and severity level. Depending upon possible causes of infection of PETYA malware, some proactive techniques can also be discussed (Singh & Singh, 2021). A separation discussion can also be made on other malware variants, their features, and many more.

  • The main objective of this research is to scrutinize the working of PETYA malware because a ransomware attack can impact the micro and macro environment of the organizations severely.
  • The working of PETYA malware along with its source code can be reviewed to identify its structure and encryption type.
  • To list all possible CVE IDs which are exploited by the PETYA malware.

RQ1: How dangerous is PETYA malware in comparison to other ransomware malware?

This research can be based on qualitative research methodology to evaluate the working of PETYA malware from various aspects, the methodology followed and what are its implications. The research can be initiated by evaluating the working of PETYA malware, how it is triggered, what encryption is applied and other factors. A sample source code can also be analyzed to learn more about how cryptography is used with ransomware (Abijah Roseline & Geetha, 2021).

Setting up a Live streaming server on the cloud platform

Nowadays, various organizations require a live streaming server to stream content depending upon their business. However, due to a lack of proper hardware, organizations are likely to face high network congestion, slowness and other problems (Ji et al., 2023). Referring to the recent cases, it has been observed that setting up a streaming server on the local environment is not expected to perform better than a cloud-based streaming server configuration (Martins et al., 2019). This particular research topic can be based on setting up a live streaming server on the AWS or Azure cloud platform to make sure high network bandwidth is provided with decreased latency. The research gap analysis would be conducted to analyze the performance of live streaming servers on local and cloud environments in terms of network performance metrics (Bilal et al., 2018).

  • To set up a live streaming server on the AWS or Azure cloud platform to provide live streaming services.
  • To use load balancers alongside streaming servers to ensure the load is balanced and scalability is achieved.
  • To use Wireshark software to test network performance during live streaming.

RQ1: Why are in-house streaming servers not able to provide improved performance in comparison to cloud-based servers?

RQ2: What additional services are provided by cloud service providers which help in maintaining network performance?

The implementation is expected to carry out on the AWS cloud platform with other AWS services i.e. load balancer, private subnet and many more (Efthymiopoulou et al., 2017). Hence, this research can be carried out using a quantitative research method. The configuration of ec2 instances can be done which can act as a streaming server for streaming media and games. For testing this project, the use of OBS studio can be done which can help in checking whether streaming is enabled or not. For network performance, Wireshark can be used for testing network performance (George et al., 2020).

Significance of using OSINT framework for Network reconnaissance

Network reconnaissance is becoming important day by day when it comes to penetration testing. Almost all white hat hackers are dependent on the OSINT framework to start with network reconnaissance and footprinting when it comes to evaluating organizational infrastructure. On the other hand, cyber attackers are also using this technique to start fetching information about their target. Currently, there is no investigation carried out to identify how effective the OSINT framework is over traditional reconnaissance activities (Liu et al., 2022). This research is focused on using OSINT techniques to analyze victims using different sets of tools like Maltego, email analysis and many other techniques. The analysis can be based on fetching sensitive information about the target which can be used for conducting illegal activities (Abdullah, 2019).

  • To use Maltego software to conduct network reconnaissance on the target by fetching sensitive information.
  • To compare the OSINT framework with other techniques to analyze why it performs well.

RQ1: What is the significance of using the OSINT framework in conducting network reconnaissance?

RQ2: How can the OSINT framework be used by cyber hackers for conducting illegitimate activities?

The OSINT framework is easily accessible on its official website where different search options are given. Hence, this research can be carried out using a quantitative research method. Depending upon the selected target, each option can be selected and tools can be shortlisted for final implementation. Once the tools are shortlisted, they can be used to conduct network reconnaissance (González-Granadillo et al., 2021). For example, Maltego can be used as it is a powerful software to fetch information about the target.

Wired and wireless network hardening in cisco packet tracer

At present, network security has become essential and if enterprises are not paying attention to the security infrastructure, there are several chances for cyber breaches. To overcome all these issues, there is a need for setting up secure wired and wireless networks following different techniques such as filtered ports, firewalls, VLANs and other security mechanisms. For the practical part, the use of packet tracer software can be done to design and implement a highly secure network (Sun, 2022).

  • To use packet tracer simulation software to set up secure wired and wireless networks.
  • Use different hardening techniques, including access control rules, port filtering, enabling passwords and many more to assure only authorized users can access the network (Zhang et al., 2012).

RQ: Why is there a need for emphasizing wired and wireless network security?

Following the quantitative approach, the proposed research topic implementation can be performed in Cisco Packet Tracer simulation software. Several devices such as routers, switches, firewalls, wireless access points, hosts and workstations can be configured and interconnected using Cat 6 e cabling. For security, every device can be checked and secure design principles can be followed like access control rules, disabled open ports, passwords, encryption and many more (Smith & Hasan, 2020).

Different Preemptive ways to resist spear phishing attacks

When it comes to social engineering, phishing attacks are rising and are becoming one of the most common ethical issues as it is one of the easiest ways to trick victims into stealing information. This research topic is based on following different proactive techniques which would help in resisting spear phishing attacks (Xu et al., 2023). This can be achieved by using the Go-Phish filter on the machine which can automatically detect and alert users as soon as the phished URL is detected. It can be performed on the cloud platform where the apache2 server can be configured along with an anti-phishing filter to protect against phishing attacks (Yoo & Cho, 2022).

  • To set up a virtual instance on the cloud platform with an apache2 server and anti-phishing software to detect possible phishing attacks.
  • To research spear phishing and other types of phishing attacks that can be faced by victims (Al-Hamar et al., 2021).

RQ1: Are phishing attacks growing just like other cyber-attacks?

RQ2: How effective are anti-phishing filters in comparison to cyber awareness sessions?

The entire research can be conducted by adhering to quantitative research methodology which helps in justifying all research objectives and questions. The implementation of the anti-phishing filter can be done by creating a virtual instance on the cloud platform which can be configured with an anti-phishing filter. Along with this, some phishing attempts can also be performed to check whether the filter works or not (Siddiqui et al., 2022).

Evaluating the effectiveness of distributed denial of service attacks

The given research topic is based on evaluating the effectiveness of distributed denial of service attacks on cloud and local environments. Hence, this research can be carried out using a quantitative research method. Cyber attackers find DDoS as one of the most dangerous technological exploitation when it comes to impacting network availability (Krishna Kishore et al., 2023). This research can revolve around scrutinizing the impact of DDoS attacks on the local environment and cloud environment. This can be done by executing DDoS attacks on a simulated environment using hoping or other software(s) to check where it has a higher magnitude (de Neira et al., 2023).

  • To set up a server on the local and cloud environment to target using DDoS attacks for checking which had experienced slowness.
  • To determine types of DDoS attack types, their magnitude and possible mitigation techniques.

RQ: Why do DDoS attacks have dynamic nature and how is it likely to sternly impact victims?

The experimentation for this research can be executed by creating a server on the local and cloud environment. Hence, this research can be carried out using a quantitative research method. These servers can be set up as web servers using apache 2 service. On the other hand, a Kali Linux machine can be configured with DDoS execution software. Each server can be targeted with DDoS attacks to check its effectiveness (Benlloch-Caballero et al., 2023).

TCP/IP Protocol

Now our systems computer, laptop, mobiles, and other internet devices are connected to one node to communicate with each other and to get internet access, and this whole process called a network system. They all are connected with the physical medium so that’s why they can be guided as wireless network system or copper wire network system to provide calculated data speed in the notes time frame. It spreads motions as electromagnetic waves or light pulses. The direct connection between two nodes are considered as guided medium and is more reliable and the occurrence of error has very less as compared to another medium. Un-guided medium is used in so many systems to provide multiple outputs at the same time. But in this system error rate is high.

To send or receive the internet signal, the two nodes follow a set of protocol which is known as IP (internet protocol). Each system is designed to follow this set of rules itself to generate maximum speed with a time limit. These protocols are designed in a manner that they follow these rules one by one. Each layer follows the protocol of the upper layer to provide services and then that layer follows the upper layer, this process will continue until data is transmitted or received. Lower layer always follows the basic set of rules and upper layer follows the advanced set of rules. Service provided by both layer will be different in terms of protocol instructions.

First data is sent or received in the application layer and then in the transport layer, after following the set of rules data then is sent to network layer to link layer and after that data has been sent to physical layer to the user. Data is divided into small packet format to provide consistency. Common internet protocol is RTP (Real-time Transport Protocol). which is used to provide information at the time of gaming, movie or music streaming. first two-layer are used to transmit or receive the information in small data packets.

Two main internet protocols are UDP (user datagram protocol) and TCP (transport control protocol). UDP and TCP both have their advantages and disadvantages of use. UDP is used because of their simplicity and with the use of UDP data can be sent immediately. But at the same time, it is unreliable as compared to TCP. TCP, then again, directs the sending rate concerning the client’s ability – stream control – and with respect to the limit of the system – clog control. It conveys the information altogether and guarantees that all information achieve the beneficiary. The hidden layers, similar to the system layer, are not required to perform solid conveyance.

TCP(Transmission Control Protocol) is a set of rules to access the Internet with the interconnection of various Internet-based devices. We can say it is a communication protocol in which there is a host with access to the Internet. This is a good topic for an M.Tech thesis in networking. If you are planning to choose this networking topic for research, then here is some basic introduction to this.

TCP/IP provides end to end data transmission between devices along with some other functionalities like addressing, mapping and acknowledgment. TCP/IP is a combination of two protocols. TCP controls the messages by dividing them into packets. IP controls the transmission of these packets from the sender to the receiver.

TCP/IP protocol layers

Following are the four layers of TCP/IP:

Application layer

Transport layer

Internet layer

Physical layer

Working of TCP/IP protocol

Client/Server model is used as a mode of communication by TCP/IP. It works in the following way:

Application layer consists of various applications for data exchange with use of protocols like HTTP(Hypertext Transfer Protocol), FTP(File Transfer Protocol), SMTP(Simple Mail Transfer Protocol)

The transport layer provides end-to-end communication between the host and the user. It uses protocol UDP(User Datagram Protocol).

Internet layer is responsible for the transfer of packets over the network and uses IP(Internet Protocol) for this purpose.

The physical layer provides interconnection between the nodes.

Advantages of TCP/IP protocol

It can be easily modified.

It is compatible with all the operating systems.

It is scalable in determining the most appropriate path.

Thus it is a good topic for M.Tech thesis as well as for research. A student can get thesis help on this topic from experts specialized in thesis guidance. You can also explore the Internet for further details on this topic.

Network Simulation Tools

Here is the list of commonly used network simulators having different features:

Another good computer networking topic for an M.Tech thesis is NS2 . NS stands for Network Simulator. It is an open-source, discrete-event based network simulator mainly used for research purpose and for teaching. It provides help in simulating routing protocols like IP, TCP, UDP, etc. It creates a simulation environment for studying the network. Following steps are followed while creating a simulation environment:

Topology Definition

Development of the model

The configuration of the link

Analysis of the problem


NS2 create network topologies and then examines the behavior of the network under any event. The behavior is analyzed by tracing down the events. NS2 provides text-based as well as animation-based simulations.

Advantages of NS2

It has the ability to support multiple protocols.

It can represent network traffic graphically.

It can also support multiple algorithms for routing and queuing.

NS2 is a very good topic for an M.Tech thesis in the computer networking field. You will not only get theoretical knowledge but also practical experience of network simulator tool. You can get thesis guidance about NS2 from an expert who has practical knowledge about how to use this tool.

MANET stands for mobile ad hoc Network and is another good choice for an M.Tech thesis topic in networking. In MANET, the nodes are self-configurable and have the ability to move freely in any direction and can link with other devices frequently. MANET was originally used as a military project in defense. MANET have the challenges of weak signal strength, reliability, power consumption along with some other problems.

Characteristics of MANET

Each node is independent in nature i.e. each node act as the host as well as the router.

It is based on the distributed nature of operation for security and configuration.

The network is dynamic in nature i.e each node can join and exit the network at any time.

The nodes in the network are associated with less memory and power.

In MANET, the bandwidth remains fluctuating.

MANET creates a symmetric environment such that all the nodes have identical features like responsibilities and capabilities.

Hurdles in the path of MANET

There are certain hurdles in the path of MANET, which it has to overcome. Some of these are:

The reliability of the transmission is affected by certain factors like data loss, interference, and blockage.

The rate of transmission is limited to a certain range thus there is a reduced data rate.

Packet loss can occur while transmission of data.

Frequent path breaks.

Lack of firewall results in security issues in the network.

This was just the introduction to MANET to give an overview of what it is if you are going with this topic for your M.Tech thesis.

Network Security is the set of rules to ensure the safety of the network of an organization or personal network. You can choose this topic for your M.Tech thesis if you have a complete understanding of how the data is transferred over the network. Network Security also include security of physical hardware devices. Network Security in software means providing authorized access to the network by means of ids and passwords.

Whenever a user tries to access the network, his authenticity is checked by means of ids and passwords. This is done to prevent any malicious user from entering the network by the motive of hacking it.

Types of attacks to network

Active Attack – In this type of attack, a hacker tries to make changes to data while it is being sent from one node to another.

Passive Attack – In this type of attack, an outsider monitors system of the organization consistently to find vulnerable ports.

Network Security Tools

Following are some of the tools employed in network security:

Thus if you really have significant knowledge(practical + theoretical) of networking tools, security

measures then you should choose this topic for M.Tech thesis. Besides, you will get thesis help as well as guidance on this topic from computer networking experts.

Network Topologies

Network Topology is the arrangement of nodes in the network both physical and logical. It is an easy topic for M.Tech thesis. Following are some of the common physical topologies:

Bus – In the bus topology, each node is connected to the main cable known as bus such that every node is directly connected to every other node.

Star – In the star topology, each node is connected to a central hub such that all the nodes are indirectly connected to each other.

Ring – In this topology, the nodes form a closed loop such that the adjacent nodes are in direct connection with each other.

Token Ring – In the token ring topology, a protocol is used. A token is passed from one node to another. A node that wants to transfer data should acquire the token.

Mesh – In the mesh network, each node is directly connected to every other node. It can be a full mesh or partial mesh network.

Tree – It is the interconnection of bus topology and star topology.

Daisy Chain – In this topology, each node is connected to two other nodes but do not form a closed loop like ring topology.

Hybrid – It is a combination of two or more topologies.

If you are afraid of complex topics in networking for M.Tech thesis, then this topic is for. It is relatively simple to understand and work on. Just go for it.

It is another major topic in computer networking and also a good choice for a thesis or project. Ipv4 is the fourth version of Internet protocol while Ipv6 is the sixth version of Internet protocol.

Characteristics of IPv4

It uses a 32-bit address.

The address is written in decimal separated by dots.

The header includes a checksum.

Broadcast addresses are used to send data packets to other nodes.

In this the Internet Protocol Security is optional.

Characteristics of Ipv6

It uses a 128-bit address.

The address is written in hexadecimal separated by colons.

The header does not include a checksum.

Broadcast addresses are not used to send data packets.

The Internet Security Protocol is compulsory.

It is a good area to study how data transfer takes place over the internet. You will study the IP data packets of Ipv4 and Ipv6. You can select this as your M.Tech thesis topic.

OSI stands for open system interconnection. It is another good topic for an M.Tech thesis in the computer networking field. It provides a networking framework to implement protocols in layers. There are seven layers of OSI Model:

Physical Layer – This layer is responsible for transferring digital data from the source to the destination.

Data Link Layer – This layer checks error in data along with the MAC address. It turns bits into data frames.

Network Layer – This layer checks whether the data has reached the destination or not by examining the source and the destination address.

Transport Layer – This layer transfers data over the network by using the TCP protocol.

Session Layer – This layer manages the events and keeps them in sequence. It supports multiple types of connections.

Presentation Layer – It looks after the syntax along with encryption and decryption for the application layer above it.

Application Layer – It provides end-to-end user applications using protocols like HTTP, FTP, SMTP.

research proposal topics computer networking

It is different from the TCP/IP model. You will get a thesis guide on this topic from computer networking experts.

However, with the change of social economy, computer networking system changes a lot and have also changed people’s lifestyle in a lot of aspects. As we know with the increasing demand for network speed, a number of network provider has been also increased. Due to the maximum number of the provider, one can easily access the high speed of the internet at a low cost. Local area network which is used in lots more other sectors like medical, military, education and science. Now we can see every-one need their own personal LAN (Local Area Network). Now LAN is not only for big enterprises but it is also available for small schools and families which are looking for high speed of data in the minimum amount.

The current speed of LAN is not enough for a user so that’s why companies are doing more research and study to provide the data at higher speed without the use of high bandwidth. But as we know if we want higher speed in a short time with a wide area, bandwidth will be increased to 30% to 300%. Now one of the very well known company called Huawei launched its 5G network, which is faster than the USA 5G network. So with this network Bandwidth also increased by 300%. It is beneficial for us but at the same time, a higher bandwidth is also not good for human life.

Various exploratory and early business LAN innovations were created during the 1970s. But then a new term called WLAN is introduced to the world in 1997 to provide a wireless network. This technology got famous in a very short span of time with the name of WiFi (Wireless Fidelity).

It stands for Wireless Local Area Network. It can be another good choice for an M.Tech thesis topic in computer networking. It is a wireless distribution method that uses high-frequency radio waves with a single access point to the Internet. In other words, it is wireless communication between two or more devices such that users can move around in a limited range area. It is most commonly used in homes or offices. The component connected to WLAN is referred to as the station. There are two types of stations – Access Point, Client.

Access Points are the base stations that transmit and receive radio frequencies for wireless-enabled devices. Clients are mobile phones, laptops, desktops connected to the wireless network.

Modes of Operation of WLAN

There are two modes of operation of WLAN:

Infrastructure – In infrastructure mode, base station act as the access point and all the nodes communicate through this point.

Ad hoc – In Ad hoc mode, mobile devices transmit data directly using peer to peer method. In this, there is no base station.

WLAN Advantages

It can support a large number of devices.

It is easy to set up wireless LAN than installing cables for the wired network.

It is easier to access a wireless network than a wired network.

WLAN Disadvantages

It is difficult to expand the network.

It faces security issues like hacking.

Interference is another problem with WLAN.

WLAN is another easier topic for an M.Tech thesis. It is used everywhere. You can take thesis help on this topic from networking professionals.


It is the science of maintaining the privacy of data. It is also an easy topic to choose for your M.Tech thesis in networking. There are three main objectives of cryptography used in transferring data over the network:



research proposal topics computer networking

Cryptography employs two techniques for maintaining the privacy of data:

Encryption – In encryption, the plain text is converted into some other form known as ciphertext.

Decryption – In this technique, the converted text i.e the ciphertext is translated back to the original text.

There are two algorithms for cryptography. In a symmetric key, both the sender and the receiver share the same key for encryption and decryption.

In an asymmetric key, both the users have different keys respectively for encryption and decryption.

This is a familiar topic and very easy to understand. Take the guidance of a thesis expert about this area to start with this topic.

IEEE stands for Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. IEEE 802 is a very challenging and a very good topic for your thesis. IEEE 802 comes under IEEE and deal with LAN(Local Area Network) and MAN(Metropolitan Area Network). It specifies certain services and protocols for the data link layer and physical layer of the OSI model. IEEE is further subdivided into 22 parts that cover a wide range of services.

IEEE 802 subdivides data link layer into two layers namely: Logical Link Layer(LLC)

Media Access Control(MAC)

You can choose any of its subfields as a part of your project or thesis. It is a very good area to explore.

These were some of the few topics for an M.Tech thesis in computer networking. You can also choose any one of these for research in networking or for your project. You can explore more on these topics.

The layering approach in networking is used to divide the message into various chunks . Basically, there are seven layers in the networking process where each layer has unique responsibilities. All these layers co-operatively work together to transfer the message from one end to another (i.e., source to destination ). Now, we can see the available layers and their function in sequential order.

What are the layers of computer networks?

  • Physical Layer – Used for offering mechanical / electrical needs, distribute the bits through transmission medium
  • Data Link Layer – Used for offering hop-to-hop distribution, arrange the bits into frames
  • Network Layer – Used for offering internetworking, pass over the packets between source and destination
  • Transport Layer – Used for offering error correction and process-to-process distribution
  • Session Layer – Used for launching and manage temporary sessions
  • Presentation Layer – Used for data translation, compression, and encryption
  • Application Layer – User for users to access the network resources / services

How to develop computer networks projects with source code?

Basically, networking is a widespread process where network construction and deployment in the real world is a challenging job. So, the entire process is fragmented into different tasks where they are performed by a set of skilled networking engineers as follows,

  • Software Developer – Design and build software applications
  • Networking Experts – modeling the network structure
  • Database Admin – Store and manage the network information
  • Support Specialist – Analyze the connected entities of the system
  • Programmer – Develop the suitable code works for achieving required performance

For research purposes, we can simulate the original network behavior and performance inappropriate simulation tools. Most importantly, it reduces the cost of real-time implementation and deployment.

Our developers have long-term experience in handling networking concepts . So, if you need the best Computer Networks Projects with Source Code support , you can approach our team. Below, we have also mentioned our qualified services in your project.

  • We do both conceptual and practical study on recent research topics
  • We design unique network simulation models, proof-of-concept prototypes and investigational testbeds
  • We employ result guaranteed new technologies to upgrade and assess the existing standard of networking systems
  • We develop own algorithm, protocols and hybrid techniques based on project requirements
  • We precisely access the network performance using suitable network parameters for comparative study of different systems

Performance Analysis of Computer Networks

Now, we can see the performance measurement of the networking model. Through the sophisticated simulation tool / experimental testbeds , we can develop any kind of network scenario. Once the model is processed, then the efficiency of the model is verified by several metrics. Here, we have given you the metrics along with different modelling techniques .

  • Medium Access Control – Retransmissions Delay, Collisions and Packet loss
  • Network Protocols – Latency, Throughput and Packet loss
  • RF Channel Models – Noise, Shadowing and Fading
  • Spectrum (Sense and Observation) – Latency and Detection Trustworthiness
  • Links and Transceivers – Block error ratio and Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR)

What is computer network simulation?

Simulate the network model based on the code of the software application . Through code, we can instruct the model to perform our project requirements. At the end of the simulation, it yields the overall performance and behaviour of the network in different dimensions and metrics. Further, it also measures the communication between the network entities.   

Purposes of source code

The source code of software has the main responsibility to create strong basements for designing and simulating the network model . Through the code only, the developers can make the smart work to tackle the problem in a simplified way. Effective code work is also a part of the contribution in research.

Since your code can help for learning or reusability (other application development), for your clarity, our developers will explain the implementation of research methodologies while delivering Computer Networks Projects with Source Code . Below, we have given you the different simulations of real-time network models,

How does computer network simulation works?

  • Plan and design the model
  • Develop the suitable hypothesis model
  • Forecast the hypothetical aspects
  • Perform comparative study to improve the hypothesis
  • Simulate the developed model
  • Based on experimental results, relate and enhance the hypothesis / model
  • Do the experiments and get the results

So far, we have discussed computer networks, network layers, communication technologies, current research areas, computer network research topics, project simulation, and performance estimation . Now, our development team has a list of widely used network simulator tools.

Network simulators let the users modify the simulator operations for their project needs. Then the users can analyze the system performance and entity behavior under different circumstances. Further, it supports communication standards/protocols like TCP, WLAN, CR, Wi-Max, WSN , and many more.

Pedro Paredes, Corwin Hall, Room 041

My primary research work is in Theoretical Computer Science.

 * Research Interest: Spectral Graph theory, Pseudorandomness, Complexity theory, Coding Theory, Quantum Information Theory, Combinatorics.

The IW projects I am interested in advising can be divided into three categories:

 1. Theoretical research

I am open to advise work on research projects in any topic in one of my research areas of interest. A project could also be based on writing a survey given results from a few papers. Students should have a solid background in math (e.g., elementary combinatorics, graph theory, discrete probability, basic algebra/calculus) and theoretical computer science (226 and 240 material, like big-O/Omega/Theta, basic complexity theory, basic fundamental algorithms). Mathematical maturity is a must.

A (non exhaustive) list of topics of projects I'm interested in:   * Explicit constructions of better vertex expanders and/or unique neighbor expanders.   * Construction deterministic or random high dimensional expanders.   * Pseudorandom generators for different problems.   * Topics around the quantum PCP conjecture.   * Topics around quantum error correcting codes and locally testable codes, including constructions, encoding and decoding algorithms.

 2. Theory informed practical implementations of algorithms   Very often the great advances in theoretical research are either not tested in practice or not even feasible to be implemented in practice. Thus, I am interested in any project that consists in trying to make theoretical ideas applicable in practice. This includes coming up with new algorithms that trade some theoretical guarantees for feasible implementation yet trying to retain the soul of the original idea; implementing new algorithms in a suitable programming language; and empirically testing practical implementations and comparing them with benchmarks / theoretical expectations. A project in this area doesn't have to be in my main areas of research, any theoretical result could be suitable for such a project.

Some examples of areas of interest:   * Streaming algorithms.   * Numeric linear algebra.   * Property testing.   * Parallel / Distributed algorithms.   * Online algorithms.    3. Machine learning with a theoretical foundation

I am interested in projects in machine learning that have some mathematical/theoretical, even if most of the project is applied. This includes topics like mathematical optimization, statistical learning, fairness and privacy.

One particular area I have been recently interested in is in the area of rating systems (e.g., Chess elo) and applications of this to experts problems.

Final Note: I am also willing to advise any project with any mathematical/theoretical component, even if it's not the main one; please reach out via email to chat about project ideas.

Opportunities outside the department

We encourage students to look in to doing interdisciplinary computer science research and to work with professors in departments other than computer science.  However, every CS independent work project must have a strong computer science element (even if it has other scientific or artistic elements as well.)  To do a project with an adviser outside of computer science you must have permission of the department.  This can be accomplished by having a second co-adviser within the computer science department or by contacting the independent work supervisor about the project and having he or she sign the independent work proposal form.

Here is a list of professors outside the computer science department who are eager to work with computer science undergraduates.

What are the big movements in networking that researchers should heed? A standout is the global spread of communities of interest (the networking analogue of the flat world) and their need for “dynamic virtual networks” that support rich applications requiring resources from several domains. The imperative for inter-networking, i.e., the enablement of coordinated sharing of resources across multiple domains, is certain. This challenge has many facets, ranging from the organizational, e.g., different, possibly competing, owners to the technical, e.g., different technologies. Yet another key characteristic of the emerging networking environment is that the service provider is required to handle ever-increasing uncertainty in demand, both in volume and time. On the other hand there are new instruments available to handle the challenge. Thus, inter-networking and uncertainty management are important challenges of emerging networking that deserve attention from the research community.

We describe research that touch on both topics. First, we consider a model of data-optical inter-networking, where routes connecting end-points in data domains are concatenation of segments in the data and optical domains. The optical domain in effect acts as a carrier’s carrier for multiple data domains. The challenge to inter-networking stems from the limited view that the data and optical domains have of each other. Coordination has to be enabled through parsimonious and qualitatively restrictive information exchange across domains. Yet the overall optimization objective, which is to maximize end-to-end carried traffic with minimum lightpath provisioning cost, enmeshes data and optical domains. This example of inter-networking also involves two technologies. A mathematical reflection of the latter fact is the integrality of some of the decision variables due to wavelengths being the bandwidth unit in optical transmission. Through an application of Generalized Bender’s Decomposition the problem of optimizing provisioning and routing is decomposed into sub-problems, which are solved by the different domains and the results exchanged in iterations that provably converge to the global optimum.

In turning to uncertainty management we begin by presenting a framework for stochastic traffic management. Traffic demands are uncertain and given by probability distributions. While there are alternative perspectives (and metrics) to resource usage, such as social welfare and network revenue, we adopt the latter, which is aligned with the service provider’s interests. Uncertainty introduces the risk of misallocation of resources. What is the right measure of risk in networking? We examine various definitions of risk, some taken from modern portfolio theory, and suggest a balanced solution. Next we consider the optimization of an objective which is a risk-adjusted measure of network revenue. We obtain conditions under which the optimization problem is an instance of convex programming. Studies of the properties of the solution show that it asymptotically meets the stochastic efficiency criterion. Service providers’ risk mitigation policies are suggested. For instance, by selecting the appropriate mix of long-term contracts and opportunistic servicing of random demand, the service provider can optimize its risk-adjusted revenue. The “efficient frontier”, which is the set of Pareto optimal pairs of mean revenue and revenue risk, is useful to the service provider in selecting its operating point.

The Most Conclusive Networking Dissertation Topics That Will Help Students in writing their Final Year Dissertations

In recent years, Networking has grown by leaps and bounds.

Networking is a complicated term.  It has evolved over the years after the advent of the computer. In information technology, networking is the construction, design, and use of a network, including the physical (cabling, hub, bridge, switch, router, and so on), the selection and use of telecommunication protocol and computer software for using and managing the network, and the establishment of operation policies and procedures related to the network. The basic purpose of networking is the sharing of information and is based on a reliable and fast communication network.

Importance of Networking

Inevitably,  networking has taken the center stage  in the world. The different kinds of networking systems i.e.  local area networking , working in a particular locality within a radius of a few kilometers; metropolitan area networking , working in a large city; and  wide area networking , covering thousands of kilometers in the radius are in place. No one can live without it, for everything is now interconnected and dependent on one another. Hence any failure in communication can lead to a massive disorder.

Networking Dissertation Topics Ideas

This importance of  networking gives a good prospect to any student who specializes in networking . Networking dissertation then becomes inevitable for them. However, there starts the confusion as to which topic should be selected. Nonetheless, in the topic selection for the dissertation, students must prefer the current requirement of networking.

How to Choose the Best Research Topics in Cyber Security

A good cybersecurity assignment heading is a skill that not everyone has, and unfortunately, not everyone has one. You might have your teacher provide you with the topics, or you might be asked to come up with your own. If you want more research topics, you can take references from Certified Ethical Hacker Certification, where you will get more hints on new topics. If you don't know where to start, here are some tips. Follow them to create compelling cybersecurity assignment topics. 

1. Brainstorm

In order to select the most appropriate heading for your cybersecurity assignment, you first need to brainstorm ideas. What specific matter do you wish to explore? In this case, come up with relevant topics about the subject and select those relevant to your issue when you use our list of topics. You can also go to cyber security-oriented websites to get some ideas. Using any blog post on the internet can prove helpful if you intend to write a research paper on security threats in 2024. Creating a brainstorming list with all the keywords and cybersecurity concepts you wish to discuss is another great way to start. Once that's done, pick the topics you feel most comfortable handling. Keep in mind to stay away from common topics as much as possible.

Academics   /   Courses   /   Descriptions COMP_SCI 397, 497: Selected Topics in Computer Networks

Prerequisites, description.

The course will cover a broad range of topics including congestion control, routing, analysis and design of network protocols (both wired and wireless), data centers, analysis and performance of content distribution networks, network security, vulnerability, and defenses, net neutrality, and online social networks.

Students will form teams of two or three; each team will tackle a well-defined research project during the quarter. A list of suggested project topics will be provided. All projects are subjected to approval by the instructor. The project component will include a short written project proposal, a short mid-term project report, a final project presentation, and a final project report. Each component adds some significant element to the paper, and the overall project grade will be based on the quality of each component of your work.

The above project components are due by email to the instructor by the end of the given day of the respective week. 

  • Week 1: Project presentations by group leaders
  • Week 2: Form groups of 2 or 3, choose a topic for your project, and meet with the project leader.
  • Week 3: Write an introduction describing the problem and how you plan to approach it (what will you actually do?). Include motivation (why does the problem matter?) and related work (what have others already done about it?). 2 pages total.
  • Week 6: Midterm presentation. Update your paper to include your preliminary results. 5 pages total.
  • Week 11: Presentations by all groups.
  • Week 12: Turn in your completed paper. 10 pages total. You should incorporate the comments received during the presentation.

  • Projects 50% (Project proposal: 5%; Midterm report: 5%; weekly report and meeting: 10%; project presentation: 10%; final project report: 20%)
  • Research idea report (optional, 3 pages): 10%

PREREQUISITES: Recommended: CS 340 or equivalent networking course 

Classes, Textbook, and other readings 

There will be no textbook for this class. A key part of the class will be to review and discuss networking research papers. Students must read the assigned papers and submit paper reviews before each lecture. Two teams of students will be chosen to debate and lead the discussion. One team will be designated the offense and the other the defense. In class, the defense team will present first. For 30 minutes the team will discuss the work as if it were their own. 

  • The team should present the work and make a compelling case why the contribution is significant. This will include the context of the contribution, prior work, and in cases where papers are previously published, how the work has influenced the research community or industry's directions (impact). If the paper is very recent, the defense should present arguments for the potential impact. Coming up with potential future work can show how the paper opens doors to new
  • The presentation should go well beyond a paper "summary". The defense should not critique the work other than to try to pre-empt attacks from the offense (e.g., by explicitly limiting the scope of the contribution).
  • The defense should also try to look up related work to support their case (CiteSeer is a good place to start looking.)

After the defense presentation, the offense team will state their case for 20 minutes. 

  • This team should critique the work, and make a case for missing links, unaddressed issues, lack of impact, inappropriateness of the problem formulation,
  • The more insightful and less obvious the criticisms the better.
  • While the offense should prepare remarks in advance, they should also react to the points made by the defense.
  • The offense should also try to look up related work to support their case.

Next, the defense and offense will be allowed follow up arguments, and finally, the class will question either side either for clarifications or to add to the discussions and controversy and make their own points on either side. The presentations should be written in Powerpoint format and will be posted on the course web page after each class. 

Writing and Submitting Reviews 

All students must read the assigned papers and write reviews for the papers before each lecture. Email the reviews to the instructor ([email protected]) prior to each lecture and the reviews will be posted on the course web page. Periodically, the instructor will evaluate a random subset of the reviews and provide feedback and grades to students. 

Please send one review in plain text per email in the body of the email message. 

A review should summarize the paper sufficiently to demonstrate your understanding, should point out the paper's contributions, strengths as well as weaknesses. Think in terms of what makes good research? What qualities make a good paper? What are the potential future impacts of the work? Note that there is no right or wrong answer to these questions. A review's quality will mainly depend on its thoughtfulness. Restating the abstract/conclusion of the paper will not earn a top grade. Reviews are roughly half-page and should cover all of the following aspects: 

  • What is the main result of the paper? (One or two sentence summary)
  • What strengths do you see in this paper? (Your review needs have at least one or two positive things to say)
  • What are some key limitations, unproven assumptions, or methodological problems with the work?
  • How could the work be improved?
  • What is its relevance today, or what future work does it suggest?

Software, Programming and Algorithm Dissertation Topics

In layman language, the software is collectively known as the “combination of operating information and all the programs that are being used by the computer.” It is a set of instructions to direct computers to perform a specific task depending upon thususer’s instructions.

The software can be written in both high and low-level languages. Low-level language is also known as machine code and is faster because it doesn’t require any compiler and directly communicates with the computer. A high-level language is pretty similar to a human language, and therefore can be easily understood by the developers. High-level language requires the compiler to translate commands to the computer.

Programming and algorithms can be termed as commands given to the computer to perform actions. Programming leads to executable programs from a computing problem and involves developing, generating, and analysing algorithms. Algorithms refer to an act done involving a step-by-step process to solve a problem. It is a set of logic written in software.

There are two types of software; operating software that helps in operation and system software necessary to run a system. Operating software can be rewritten and changed according to demand, but system software cannot be altered. If developers require any alterations, they would have to develop new software.
