1. Group Formation

For this assignment, students need to form groups of 4 to 5 members under the supervision of Lecturer/Tutor. Each group must be formed of 4 to 5 students. In case there is a small group (such as with remaining two students), then the Lecturer/Tutor can rebalance the groups to ensure that there are no “small” groups.

2. Topic Selection

Each group needs to select one of the following security vulnerability testing tools of Kali Linux on a first come first served basis:

• Hydra
• Maltego
• NMap
• Zed Attack Proxy
• SqlMap
• Metasploit Framework
• Burp Suite

If there are more groups than the number of available topics, then one topic can be selected by more than one group. This should be arranged under the discretion of Lecturer/Tutor.

If a group wants to select a security vulnerability testing tool of Kali Linux that is not listed above, the group needs to discuss this with the Lecturer/Tutor.

3. Deliverables

Members of each group need to learn the usage of the selected tool of Kali Linux. For this students need to research, install, and use Kali Linux and the selected tool. After sufficient study and hands on experience, each group needs to prepare and submit a report, and orally present their understanding on the selected tool and Kali Linux as a whole (individual member presentation). Formats of report and oral presentation are mentioned below.

3.1 Report

Each group needs to prepare a report (must be in PDF/DOC/DOCX) in the following format (section headings):

1. Introduction of the tool
2. Features of the tool
3. Techniques used by the tool to exploit vulnerabilities of information  systems
4. Experimental setup and evidence of usage of the tool (include screenshots of vulnerability testing that you have performed)
5. Conclusions
6. References

The size of the report should be from 1500 to 1700 words. Report should include group number and member information (member students’ name and students ID numbers).

3.2 Oral Presentation

Each person in a group needs to perform oral presentation of the selected tool for 5 minutes.

The presentation should be sufficiently detailed to enable audiences to be able to use the tool.

The oral presentation should (not limited to) include the following aspects:

• Introduction to Kali Linux
• Introduction to the selected tool of Kali Linux
• Features of the tool
• Details on the types of security vulnerability checks/attacks that can be carried out with the tool

Each student needs to prepare a powerpoint/PDF presentation of 10-12 slides and show it during the oral presentation. The powerpoint/PDF slides should contain 5-6 screenshots of the experiements performed by the student.

NOTE: In case it is infeasible for conducting oral presentation for all students, Lecturer/Tutor can allow students to make a Video Presentation and upload in Moodle. In this case, the video should clearly show the student presenting in person on the selected topic.

3.3 Moodle Submission

Students are required to submit the followings through Moodle:

1. Report (1500 to 1700 words): Must be in either PDF or DOC/DOCX format.
2. Video Presentation (5 mins presentation): Must be in mp4 or other similar format, and must be less than 100 MB size.
