Project based UpSkilling

Our Linux internals courses gives very high importance on project based learning. Not only you learn a particular technology as a part of the workshop, it will enable you to build a project on your own. Here is a list of projects that will expose you to various part of Linux Kernel and System calls.

Mini Shell implementation – System calls & Signal handling

Project brief

Mini shell is a command processor, typically run in a text window, allowing the user to type commands which cause actions. BASH can also read commands from a file, called a script. Like all Unix shells, it supports piping and variables as well.

The goal of this project is to implement a mini-shell that mimics the BASH shell by using Linux Kernel System calls and IPC mechanisms like signals. It will also handle special keyboard actions (ex: Control C), can be extended for
advanced functionalities (ex: Command history) as well.

Technologies used
  • Linux Kernel System Calls usage
  • IPC – Signal handling
  • String pointers & parsing

Message Queue IPC implementation inside Linux Kernel

Project brief

Message queues are one of the IPC mechanisms that helps two user-space process to communicate and exchange information. They are exposed by the Kernel as system calls. In actual implementation the data-structures are maintained inside the Kernel to facilitate buffer transfer between two processes.

The goal of this project is to implement Message Queue IPCs inside the kernel and expose them to user space processes. Along with implementation, these new system calls need to be hooked into Kernel’s soft interrupt ecosystem.

Technologies used
  • Queue & Linked list ADTs
  • Linux Kernel data structures – process & memory
  • System call / Soft-interrupt ecosystem of Linux Kernel

Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) – RFC 1350

Project brief The Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) is a simple way of transferring file between two systems. This protocol is specified in RFC 1350.This protocol doesn’t support advanced available in FTP (ex: User authentication), typically

used in Embedded systems for its smaller footprint and simplicity.The goal of this project is to understand RFC and implement the protocol in a LAN environment. Eventually this project can be extended for advanced cases like inter-operating with standard TFTP client / servers.

Technologies used
  • TCP/IP networking
  • UDP socket APIs
  • Time-out and re-transmission used in networks

TCP based remote management

Project brief

Internet today has become a very complex entity by having different set of devices working together. In a scenario where the network devices are located remotely (ex: Wireless base station) monitoring such devices pro-actively becomes a very critical activity. Any malfunctions happen in remote device (ex: CPU usage) will result in device crash.

The goal of this project is to implement a TCP based client and server. The centralized server will connect with multiple clients and monitor various system parameters, thereby enabling remote manageability.

Technologies used
  • Linux commands used in systems management
  • TCP socket APIs
  • IPC Signal handling

Network packet injector using RAW sockets

Project brief

One of the key requirements of network is the ability to handle large volume of data. Network should have necessary resilience to handle, which is simulated using Network packet injectors in test environment.

The goal of this project is to create a command line based Network packet injector that will generate all major protocol packets (ex: HTTP). For implementation RAW sockets are used.

Technologies used
  • TCP/IP network protocols – Headers & payload
  • RAW socket usage
  • Command line parsing

TCP/IP chat room

Project brief Web based chat applications is one of the more commonly used tool for effective two way communication, starting with IRC chat-rooms. Each user need to authenticate himself and join a chat-room after which he should be able to communicate with all in the group.

The goal of this project is to simulate a chat room in a LAN by using TCP sockets and demonstrate message exchanges

Technologies used
  • TCP socket APIs
  • Server discovery in a LAN environment
  • User authentication mechanisms
