Project

Network monitoring using Nagios and autoconfiguration for cyber defense competitions

The goal of the project is to monitor the services running on the CCDC (College Cyber Defense Competition) network, using Nagios which uses plugins to monitor the services running on a network. Nagios is configured by building configuration files for each machine which is usually done to monitor small number of systems. The configuration of Nagios can also be automated by using shell scripting which is generally done in an industry, where the numbers of systems to be monitored are large. Both the above methods of configuration have been implemented in this project. 
 The project has been successfully used to know the status of each service running on the defending team’s network. The project also includes network traffic reduction using failover monitoring where one Nagios machine monitors another Nagios machine so that if one machine fails the other machine does the work of the broken system
