Week 3 Status Report

Summary

I had a lot of fun this week digging into my project outline.  This process prompted me to do some initial research on the Raspberry PI, Wireshark, and Kali Linux.  In an effort to find more information on the history of Kali Linux, which is BackTrack Linux, I reached out to the Offensive Security group.  I started to develop a relationship with one of their contributors, Muts.  Muts have helped me in the past on the Kali IRC channel working with my wireless cards on the Pi.  I also have reached out to the creator of Wireshark to ask for permission to use the Wireshark logo on my project webpage.  I have yet to hear back, but I’m hoping for the best.

I have developed a research/history outline for the three components to my attack; Raspberry Pi, Wireshark, and Kali Linux.  I am a bit worried that I will get bogged down with the amount information that I have found.  I need to focus on my current scope and ensure that the history information I provide is more topical.  I do feel that I may revisit these topics some day in the future and provide a comprehensive history of each.  However, additional research falls out of the scope of this project.  That said, the amount of information available can be quite inconclusive.  Open Source projects are designed to offer the collaborative effort of software development, rather than to keep a perfect history of their evolution.

In addition, the website layout design is complete, and I have already translated this into static pages on the website.  This was actually scheduled for next week, giving me a slight early start.
