Projects for Distributed Systems Lab

These projects are fundamental for creating a computational ecosystem in which vast majority of networking management tasks could be automatized. For portability, the services and tools must be deployed on virtual machines.

Network services
  • DHCP Server
  • DNS Server
Deployment services
  • Fedora mirror
  • Cobbler/koan
Services to enable remote access
  • Tools to support remote monitoring via remote terminal as well as browser interface
    NOTE: wake-on LAN service would be enable in all machines at lab
Repository services
  • Git tool
Security tool
  • To search, evaluate and select a network intrusion detection tool
There would be two operating systems in the lab
  • CentOS would be the Linux distro in which cobbler/koan service would reside
  • Ubuntu server would be used to deploy DNS, DHCP and Git programs along with a network intrusion detection tool.
Repositories for both environments would be required. Only last releases would be maintained.
