Project Idea 
The Tor network is a distributed system designed to keep a user anonymous while accessing the internet. Tor is a network of "onion routers" that provide a private encrypted network to tunnel your traffic through before it gets onto the web. This is especially helpful if a user wants to access the internet from an IP that is outside of their country.

The Vidalia Control Panel is a GUI Control Panel for a client's connection with the Tor network. Part of this Control Panel is a map of the world showing the location of every exit node. My goal for this project is to be able to choose your exit node from this map and reconfigure the client's Tor route to exit from this selected exit node.

Course Topics 
Welcome to my website for my Distributive Systems class, CSC 8530 at Villanova University. Don't be too impressed, the back end for this blog was taken from .

Here are my potential topics for the class:
  1. Distributed systems in the Tor Network
  2. Distributed problem solving (Mersenne Primes, protein folding)
  3. Distributed peer to peer networks (bit torrents)
  4. Web based Distributed Systems using Javascript, Flash or Java applets (client-side applications)
  5. Ad-hoc wireless networks
  6. Distributed Operating systems over multiple computers
  7. Distributed artificial intelligent agents
  8. Distributed computing with multiprocessor and multi-core machines
  9. Distributed Systems and folksonomies as well as other web 2.0 "data structures"
  10. Distributed hacking (botnets, ddos attacks)
