VoIP Security Threats

Interesting video on VoIP security.

So that idea didn't go so well...

Using a blog as a project record seemed like such a good idea at the time. In practice, once I'd gotten going with the project work itself, I had neither the time or the inclination to update. Maybe it would have worked had the project been my sole point of focus, but other work got in the way.

The project is done, the dissertation is handed in

I don't know how much of my work I'll be able to publish as I'm not sure what sort of ownership rights the university places on it, but if I can publish the interesting bits I will. Any interested eys should be kept here and on the project home page.

I'm going to leave this blog active as the project has left me with quite an interest in VoIP and other realtime digital communication technologies, so should the mood take me I may use this as dedicated outlet for anything related to this that I want to share.

Second Review

It's been a busy few weeks. The second review hand in is now over and done with, and I've submitted a nearly completed research chapter on formal testing. I say nearly complete because I'm not yet familier enough with the subject to write a paper that covers everything that it needs to. But, it's started and the progress report has been submitted along side it.

Upate & Research Topics

Been a reasonably productive couple of weeks. I finally have the computer I needed from the uni to start running test servers on, so as soon as the 2nd review is out of the way in a couple of weeks I can resume my practical testing.

I also (I think) have my TOR finalised - I have my 2 reasonable research topics to do chapters on:

1. Evaluation & comparison of VoIP and Video Conferencing to inform practical work
2. Performing and documenting formal testing of network services

Hopefully this should be the last re-draft, but if they keep giving me hoops I guess I have to keep jumping. Now I just need to decide which one of these to use for the research chapter that needs submitting at my second review. And of course write the damn thing.

Video Testing 1

Performed first video conferencing test with TokBox today. Notes can be found here. Further testing under different conditions necessary. Other tester connected to internet via 3G mobile internet. While this provides interesting info on the use of these services from varying types of network connections it does not provide an accurate picture of the services using standard broadband and associated network speeds, which is a base line that is required for accurate testing.

Also spoke to other tester via Skype. No notes produced for this yet, but performance was considerably better than that of TokBox. Will produce and publish notes asap.
