In the institute that I am working , we are planning to change our lab systems in the following manner:
1. We will set up a server for each lab (in each lab roughly 30 systems) We still don't know what to use 2. After the windows/linux boot up ,before the students do any work, a popup will come on the screen and they will have to enter their roll no and password. They should not minimized this part 3. All the things that the students do (like accessing pen drive, dvd roms, web , which files they access) will be logged
4. The logged file will be analysed and if any abnormal words/ files are accessed (like Warcraft,CS etc) this will be sent back to the server
5. The server then will generate a report and the system administrator can then check the report.
This is for purely security purpose and to protect our lab systems from unwanted viruses downloaded by the students..
I feel that implementing this will be quite a task , if there is an existing server/software i would gladly go for that..Implementation is the last stage..
It does not have to be in java. If it's in other language there is no problem
