Umit SoC 2009 - Results

Hi Everybody,

This year we launched a program similar to Google Summer of Code dubbed Umit Summer of Code. The whole idea is to support all students who would want to contribute to the Umit Project in parallel to Google Summer of Code. The project was had introduced a new concept of a mentor and a co-mentor that is inside the project where students should be comfortable to ask some questions. It had another contributors involved, to be sure that students had support.

We developed the idea early this year and followed through it. The contributions of students were apparent in June.

As we wrap the project for this year, we're still supporting contributors of the program and integrating them. It has been a great first year and we look forward to USoC 2010!

Now the results:

Abhiram Kasina [3]: He is from IIT Kharagpur, India that worked on the Message Sequence Chart (MSC) plugin [1] for PacketManipulator [2]

Plugin is able to create a chart from the packets sent and received between machines. The strength of this project lies in the ability to use a sequence of filters on the packet flow captured. For example, this could only show TCP packets between 192.168.1.31 and 192.168.1.32, involved in a 3-way handshake. These charts can be saved as png/svg images for further use. The source code can be found in MSC svn branch [5].



Mahesh PM [4] : He is a student from Thiruvalla, India working on a transversal area in Umit Project. The major part of his work was developing a Test Suite for Umit Network Scanner. He developed test cases for part of core files, and fixing couple of bugs in Network Scanner. The test suite code can be found in UmitTestSuite branch [6].
He also did a Slax live distribution based with Umit tools installed.

Another students still working: We have another two students: Neeraj Gupta, from India and João Pedro Lemos, from Brasil working in the program. He didn't finish the project yet, but they are still working on it. Actually Neeraj is working on NVDB parser and a plugin for discover web contents for Umit Network Scanner. João Pedro Lemos is working on Umit packing in Fedora and RPM based distros.

Thanks for the guys that make it possible!

Stay tunned!
