Projects completed

Project Title: Implementation of Recently Introduced Cryptographic algorithms for Data Security (2018)

  • Scope and objectives: The value of digital data stored on information system is growing significantly. Any networked based applications are susceptible to attacks. This research explains how some of the cryptographic mechanisms can be useful to enhance data security in the information systems. Main objective of the research is to analyses performance of well-known symmetric key cryptographic algorithms for providing security to critical information of the systems.
  • Research outcomes: Experimental results and analytical graphical reports of this research make clear which algorithm is more suitable for small and large text data files. Proposed result is useful to enhance the performance and security of data stored on network based applications like Online Quiz and Question Paper Generation. Research output is published as journal article “Performance analysis of AES, DES and Blowfish cryptographic algorithms on small and large data files”.

Project Title: Designing Examination System for Divyangs - visually impaired people (2017)

  • Name of other project members: Dr. Mukesh Patel (Physiotherapist, Deaf Mute Society, Ahmedabad)
  • Scope and objectives: To design examination system software for visually impaired people with controlled access to specified people.

 

Under Graduate Research Project

Project Title: Analysis of Cyber Safety Awareness amongst Netizens of Ahmedabad University (2017)

  • Name of other project members: Prof. Bipin Mehta, Yash Mehta( B. Tech. ICT), Ankit Sharma (B. Com.)
  • Scope and objectives: The main objective of this research was to assess the cyber safety awareness of the respondents. Literature review was performed to identify parameters which reflect the Cyber Security awareness. A questionnaire based on such fundamentals of Cyber security was designed to record the responses of the students of Ahmedabad University. A survey was conducted using online Google Apps.
