(MIS 510) Cybersecurity PROJECT

Return to MIS 510 main page

Class Project Students get ready to present their final class project.


As computers become more ubiquitous throughout society, the security of networks and information systems is a growing concern. An increasing amount of critical infrastructure relies on computers and information technologies. Advancing technologies have enabled hackers to commit cybercrime much more easily now than in the past. At the same time, accessibility to technologies and methods to commit cybercrime has grown. As a result, more researchers have become interested in the cyber domain.  Recently, security researchers have begun conducting more explorations of hacker communities in tandem with focusing on the technological element of security.

Project Requirements

Each project team will consist of about four members of diverse skills, who will participate in the data collection, analysis, and evaluation of Cybersecurity content. You will be given credentials to access the Hacker Web data collection in AI lab. You need to create an account to access Shodan data which is available online. You are required to propose interesting and meaningful research questions regarding each data-set and come up with technical solutions to solve the problems. You need to automate the data access and analysis processes. Using additional data-sets to support your analysis is encouraged. The final derivatives are a 10-page report and presentation slides.Your project will be judged based on the novelty and meaningfulness of the research questions, depth and thoroughness of backgroud research (literature review), and novelty and technical skills used for analysis.

Lab sessions will be provided to assist you in this effort. During the semester, each group will present their work (usually before the Mid-Term week). Each group will be rated by the instructor and other groups during presentation and each team member will be rated by other members in the same team. Your final report should detail the role and actual contribution of each team member.
