Interesting Decisions
15
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Points of Discussion
 Proxy Attendance
 Persistent problem that needs to be addressed
 Need a robust solution
 Present Ideas:
 Random checks by professor.
 Manual verification of headcount.
16
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Points of Discussion
 Creation of simple app to authenticate student
 E.g. Entering a password for verification
 Does not solve proxy problem
 Can cause distraction during class
17
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Ease of Use on Mobile Application
 Mobile app to have features for enabling plugins.
 Some examples of plugins are:
 Automatically take attendance as per schedule.
 Proxy attendance based (discussed earlier).
18
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Database Features
 Integration with Kerberos Authentication.
 Providing secure and encrypted access to the database.
 Automated Initialization of the database for courses.
 Permission Centric model with different privileges to each kind
of user.
 Provision of administrative users to police entire setup.

LDAP & Kerberos Integration
 Automated initialization from LDAP
 List of courses
 List of attendees
 Course Coordinators
 Identification of user groups
 Integrated with the Kerberos authentication
43
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
LDAP Integration - Leaks
 Only course coordinator in LDAP
 Other profs have to manually registered for each course with
super privileges.
 TA’s are not available in LDAP.
 Any super of the course can manually add TA’s
44
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Initialization Of Database On App
 Relevant Data is sent over to the app on initialization.
 Codes:
 CA: Course Add
 CD: Course Delete
 SA : Student Add
 SM : Student Modify
 SD : Student Delete
 SP: Student Proxy
45
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Networking : Server <-> App
 Transaction Of Attendance Logs
 Transaction Of Updated Mac Addresses
 Transaction Of Proxy Attendance
 JSON encoding is used for transaction of strings.
46
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Network Security
 Web server uses https(128 bit encryption) for all
communications
 Web site
 Android app
 Installation of website certificate is integrated with the app
installation (automatic).

CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
How to get MAC addresses?
 Proposed Solutions:
 Direct Input from user
 User looks up bluetooth MAC address and enters into profile via webpage
 Different Procedures as per manufacturer of the phone
 Windows Program
 Design of windows program
 Display a list of Bluetooth Connections in range and corresponding MAC
addresses.
49
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Experimentation
 Run experiment in Labs
 Short circuits:
 User registration
 Course Attendees Lookup
 Data to be recorded:
 Number of people present.
 Number of people found to be present.
 Maximum distance to which a person was registered present.
 Number of people in proximity but not marked present.
50
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Open Questions
 How to find maximum number of connections that can be
identified by a mobile phone?

CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Desktop Application
 Need : Register student’s mac-address.
 Requirements:
 Portable and easy to run.
 Independent of bluetooth stack.
 Does not allow mac address sharing
 Kerberos Authentication
 Implementation:
 Uses Bluetooth stack provided by python-bluez
61
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Experiment
 Maximum range till which a person may be identified?
 Maximum number of people that can be identified?
 Are we missing out any people in the vicinity?
 How much battery is consumed?
 How much time is needed to find n people?
 How much time should the application run?
62
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Maximum Range
 Without any obstructions:54 m
 With one wall in the middle: 12m outside wall

Running time of app?
 Keep a count of number of people found in previous 40
seconds.
 Stop when count==0
66
CSP315- Bluetooth Attendance System
Next steps
 Store photographs of students in the android database.
 Add proxy catching heuristics to code
 Randomly display names of present people
 Add scheduling functionality to the app so that it can run on
itself as per a timetable.
 Stress testing , checking for any open loops.
