FIT1047 Introduction to computer systems, networks and
security - S1 2022
Assignment 3 – Networks
Purpose In Part 1 of this assignment, students will record data from a real-world wireless
network and demonstrate that they can analyse it, identify its properties and
potential issues. In Part 2, students analyse Internet traffic and identify servers,
clients and protocols used.
The assignment is related to Unit Learning Outcomes 5 and 6.
Your task You need to submit a report with your findings regarding the analysis tasks for Part
1. The instructions below contain concrete questions you should answer in your
report. Part 2 is submitted via a Moodle quiz.
Value 30% of your total marks for the unit
The assignment is marked out of 60 marks.
Word Limit 600 words for Task 1.2, no word limits for the remaining tasks
Due Date 11:55 pm Friday 20 May 2022
Submission ● Via Moodle assignment submission (Part 1)
● Turnitin will be used for similarity checking of all submissions.
● Via Moodle quiz submission (Part 2)

INSTRUCTIONS
This assignment has two parts. Make sure you read the instructions carefully.
Part 1: WLAN Network Design and Security
For this part of the assignment, you will perform a real-world WLAN site survey. Your task is
to produce a map of (part of) a building that gives an overview of the wireless networks that
are available, as well as an analysis of the network.
What you will need: a WiFi-enabled laptop (some smartphones also work, see below), and
a place to scan. For example, you can perform a survey of your home, of an office space, of
parts of the Monash campus. If you don’t own a suitable device that you could use for this
activity, try to borrow one from a friend, or contact us to figure out an alternative.
You have to complete two tasks (a survey and a report).
Task 1.1: Survey (15 marks)
Create a map of the place you want to survey. A simple floorplan will be sufficient, it doesn’t
have to be perfectly to scale. See the appendix for an example. The map needs to include
distances and needs to be labelled with all relevant information (e.g. wall material, if used for
the discussion). Your survey should cover an area of at least 60 square metres (e.g. 6x10
metres, or 4x15, or two storeys of 6x5 each). Be creative – the survey can include hallways
or outside areas. Be sure to take the analysis in Task 1.2 into account, by designing your
survey to include walls, doors etc. it will be easier to write something interesting in Task 1.2.
Furthermore, your survey must include at least three WiFi access points. These can be your
own, but can also include your neighbours’ APs or the ones at Monash, for example. If you
are scanning in a commercial area or on campus, you should be able to see enough APs. If
you want, you can create an additional AP with a phone (using “Personal hotspot” or
“Tethering” features).
For the survey, use a WLAN sniffing tool (see below) in at least eight different locations on
your map. For each location, record the technical characteristics of all visible APs.
Depending on the scanning tool you use, you can record features such as the network
name, MAC address, signal strength, signal to noise ratio (SNR), 802.11 version(s)
supported, band (2.4 or 5 GHz) and channel(s) used.
Add the data gathered from the survey into the map of the covered area. On the map you
should indicate the location of the access points and the locations where you took
measurements.
For the access points, use the actual location if you know it, or an approximation based on
the observed signal strength (e.g. if it’s your neighbour’s access point and you don’t know
exactly where it is).
For each measurement point, you can either add the characteristics directly into the map, or
create a separate table with the details. You can submit several maps if you choose to enter
data directly into the maps, or a single map if you use additional tables. Create the map

yourself, do not use the mapping features available in some commercial (i.e., paid) WLAN
sniffing tools.
Task 1.2: Report (20 marks)
Write a report (word limit 600) on your observations analysing the data collected in the
previous step (Task 1.1). Your analysis should investigate the following aspects:
● Channel occupancy: Are different access points competing on the same channels?
Are they configured to use overlapping channels? Could the configuration be
improved?
(5 marks)
● Interference from walls, doors etc.: How do different materials affect signal strength
and/or noise? Can you notice a difference in attenuation for different APs?
(5 marks)
● Coverage: Do the access points sufficiently cover the desired area? Could the
placement or configuration be improved?
(5 marks)
● Any other aspect of your own choice. Here are a few suggestions:
○ measure the attenuation caused by your own body
○ measure the download and upload speeds in different locations
○ determine the overlap that has been implemented to enable roaming
○ describe how you interpolated the locations of access points from the signal
strengths
Describe your findings and explain them with some technical detail (i.e., not only say
what you found, but also how you performed the analysis or why you think the
network is behaving that way).
(5 marks)
Tools: You can use e.g. Acrylic Wifi (https://www.acrylicwifi.com/en/) for Windows, NetSpot
(http://www.netspotapp.com) for macOS and Windows, and LinSSID or wavemon for Linux.
If you have an Android smartphone, apps like Wifi Analyzer can also be used. On iOS, WiFi
scanning apps do not provide enough detail, so iPhones won’t be suitable for this task.
For drawing the site maps, any drawing tool should work, for example LucidChart, or even
presentation tools such as PowerPoint, Keynote or Google Slides. Scans of hand-drawn
maps are acceptable if they are neat and easily readable.
Part 2: Internet Traffic Analysis (25 marks)
This part of the assignment requires you to download a PCAP file, open it in Wireshark and
answer a few questions about the captured frames. The PCAP files are individualised, so
make sure that you download the correct file while you are logged into Moodle.
You can access your individual PCAP file through the Assignment 3 Part B quiz link
on Moodle. All of your answers have to be submitted via that Moodle quiz. You have
two hours to complete the quiz after starting the attempt.
Here are a few tips on how to approach these tasks.

MAC addresses:
These are the addresses of individual devices at the Data Link Layer. Each frame contains a
sender and receiver MAC address. For each frame, think about which device would be the
sender and which the receiver.
IP addresses:
These are the Network Layer addresses. Remember that we use the DNS protocol to map a
human-readable address (such as www.monash.edu) to an IP address (such as
202.9.95.188). So in order to find out the IP address for some of the devices, you may have
to try to find DNS requests and responses in the PCAP file.
TCP connections:
Remember that each TCP connection starts with a three-way handshake. This was covered
in the lectures, so you may have to go back to the videos if you’re not sure what those
frames look like.
