sorry bro If you are looking for ready made projects then i don't think so any one will help you here

if you are looking for some project idea

then here it is

You can work on a project that will encrypt file ie provided by user and then transmit it to desired location where the receiver will decrypt it.You can use various encryption/decryption techniques?

You can also work on prevention of DDOS attack.

If you want any kind of help then ceans are here to help you 😀

If you are looking for any project in security and internet attacks

then i think your best choice is to take any open source IDS ,such as snort ,syslog,barnyard etc

find its limitations and modify it to remove those limitations,

Are you trying to make a proxy server, because, if you are making some kind of URL filter and sending it to the browser, then it acts as a proxy between your original internet connection and the browser. Getting what I said??? 😁

yeah i got it.........but i don't want to make some complex project because this is a minor project so i want it as simple as i can make.........i m just made a window with a text field in it,and a database in SQL which contains the URL of some popular websites whose phishing chances are more......when user enter a website's URL in text field and press enter....the URL is being matched with the URLs given in the database and if a perfect match is found a pop-up window with a confirmation message appears and if URL doesn't match then a error window appears...........this is what i want to make ......i need help whether this concept is correct or not........😉

I don't get you when you use SQL for storing and matching... Oki, fine... There is a site called faceb00k dot com which is a phishing site of facebook. How would you check with your logic whether it is the real site or the duplicate one? 😐

Take for eg., icicibank.com... or some bank sites, where phishing is common and it is not available in the database. 😐 What is your answer for this? How will it know what is the intended website and the site it is going??? 😐

what if someone manipulate DNS via host file or a technique called DNS Spoofing?
I think you should not display a error window ,just use a error msg saying "Something doesn't seems right ",you can also use jQuery to check common element in the whole website,,,
Before making network security website do some study on how network works.
Must watch this video >

there also apps available on play store ,just search for "hacking" .

You guys can try play around with AlienVault's OSSIM. It's an open source log/event collector AKA SIEM. As a project, you can create your own event/log parser and interpret specific actions (such as hacking attempts on the WiFi network, etc).

Nowadays, network security admins don't have time to deep dive into logs to see whats the problem. They need info quickly so they can take appropriate actions before its too late.
