Project Information
Network and Cybersecurity Research


  • Random research (aka read articles + watched lecture videos)
  • Setup virtual machine for testing network properties


Here are some notes I took while randomly deep-diving into networks and cybersecurity the other day. Networks are both straightforward and horribly confusing at the same time. Looking at how the different layers are integrated, I can definitely see how technology scaled over time. It feels like each layer of technology was tacked on when needed in order to fit the needs of a growing population. Looking at each layer in detail, it becomes really complex, but looking at the big picture, system-wise, it makes sense, at least. Not much coding, but a lot of learning!
