Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A low-cost system for acquiring login/logout data for on-ground racks of in-flight entertainment systems
by Chanda, Manjeera, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 35; 10141519
Abstract (Summary)

Computer users logging in and out of their systems run the risk of access malfunctions and security threats. The motivation for the current project is the need to obtain and store login/logout information for on-ground racks of In-flight Entertainment (IFE) Systems in a secure and effective way.

The current project presents the development of a low-cost system with a dedicated function, which authenticates a user for login privileges, acquires, and stores login/logout information separately from the user's main computer such as a desktop, laptop or the IFE system racks. The proposed system is implemented on a simple Raspberry Pi platform, working as an embedded system. The system automatically identifies login or logout time, user name, and status for a particular account and, at the same time, it sends a notification to the main server and stores that information for future reference. The effectiveness of the developed system is demonstrated experimentally.
