    Strategies for optimizing password management against versatile attacks
    (Kampala International University ,School of Engineering and Applied Sciences,Department of Computer Engineering, 2016-08) Kule, Titus; Bakwanamaha, Allan
    Managing passwords is a significant problem for most people in the modern world. Passwords are a critical part of information and network security. Passwords serve as primary authentication method to protect user accounts but a poorly chosen password, if compromised, could put the entire network at risk. Many users do not understand why good passwords and password management are important for information systems. “We’re secure! We use passwords!” How many of us have heard this claim? Or even “We’re secure! We have a password policy!” Using a password or having a password policy in today’s world of computing is not enough. Understanding and practicing the policy is important to keep accounts secure. In this project research, the author has conducted a survey to check password habits for user accounts on 200 academy staffs, non-academy and students within Kampala International University (Kampala campus). This survey allowed the author to understand password habits of users according to sensitive of their account, also reveals some critical issues associated with password choice. As a result, data on password strength, the types and lengths of passwords chosen, and how they vary by site or sensitivity of account has been considered. Furthermore, recommendations are given based on different aspects of users` requirements. Hopefully, the result of this research project will be valuable to users who want to use password policy for securing user accounts.

    A mobile phone jammer system using gsm900 frequency
    (Kampala International University ,School of Engineering and Applied Sciences,Department of Electrical and Telecommunication Engineering, 2015-09) Okello, Walter; Mohamed, Daud
    Due to technological advancement in the mobile phone industry, mobile phones have become a very vital communication device today with number of end user applications embedded. For instance; Games, online videos, e-commerce, social media like Facebook, whatsapp, twitter, to mention but a few. This has resulted to the use of mobile phones everywhere which become disruptive while praying, studying, in meeting, in court room, driving, examination rooms, etc. The main purpose of this project was to design and build a system that can block the use of mobile phone by transmitting radio waves of the same frequencies as that of the mobile phone causing interference between mobile phone and the Base Transceiver Station, hence the mobile phone displays "NO NETWORK" on the screen so that it can be installed in places where the use of mobile phone is not required. Although different cellular systems process signals differently, all cell-phone networks use radio signals that can be interrupted or interfered. GSM technology used in digital cellular system and PCS-based systems, operates in the 900-MHz, 1800-MHz and WCDMA 2100 bands in Europe and Asia and in the 1900MHz band in the United States are some of the mobile phone networks. Jammers can broadcast on any mobile network frequency and are effective against WCDMA, GSM and DCS. This project discussed the design and development of GSM Mobile jammer which can avail the solution to problems stated earlier. To come up with the above system, we carried out researches that enabled us to attain appropriate designs and there after the design, we were able to construct/build different parts of the system and interconnect them as one unit. Finally the system was tested for functionality, results were arrived at which fulfilled the concept of jamming by releasing same frequency as the one from BTS.

    Assessment of Sustainable Eco-Friendly Green Building Structures and Its Promotion in Kampala
    (Kampala International University, school of engineering, department of civil engineering, 2018-09) Luwobo, Keneth; Kisajjaki, Abeli
    The construction industry consumes about forty percent of the world’s energy. The high increasing rate of construction activities has led to exploitation of most of the natural resources. These activities have led to massive deforestation and clearing of green cover for settlement and infrastructure development in Kampala. The repercussions of these activities are catastrophic such as poor air quality, urban heat island effect, toxic gas emission, increased cooling costs, which later affect people’s health. The study mainly aims at introducing and making aware to the public a technology that can be used to eliminate most if not all the environmental problems listed above. The green roof technology has been in use since the ancient days such as the Babylonian gardens. The green roof technology is currently being used and promoted in most developed countries such as; Germany, USA, Switzerland and Australia as a key component to sustainable development. The main objective of this study is to assess the feasibility of adopting the green roof technology our building in Kampala capital city. Specifically carrying out literature review on major benefits of a green roof, to assess its cost analysis and carrying out a market research for green roof materials. The results of the study were; the green roof has quite a number of benefits such as storm water management, habitat for wild life, noise attenuation, improved air quality, reduction in greenhouse gases. The initial cost of installing a green roof was found to be more expensive than the conventional roof. However, the benefits of the green roof were found to outweigh the initial costs of installation in the long run.

    Design of an Fm Bugger Circuit
    (Kampala International University ,School of Engineering and Applied Sciences,Department of Telecommunication Engineering, 2016-02) Yahaya, Ahmad H.; Nzanzu, Syayighosola
    FM bugger is a device which generates frequency modulated signal. It is one element of a radio system which, with the aid of an antenna, propagates an electromagnetic signal. Standard FM broadcasts are based in the 88 - 108 MHz range. The signal (from the microphone) is fed into the audio frequency (AF) for amplification then to the modulator which combines the modulating signal with the carrier wave transports the modulated signal through (RF) for final amplification to the antenna. Fm receivers can be operated in the very high frequency bands at which AM interference is frequently severe, commercial FM radio stations are assigned frequencies between 88 and 108 MHz and is the intended frequency range of transmission. The FM bugger is a device which gives the information of one person to another in the remote location. Normally bugger is used for finding out the status of the person like where he is going, what he is talking etc. This FM bugger circuit is kept in a place where there is need of listening to a conversation. You can listen to this conversation using the normal FM radio set but a receiver circuit is designed for this project. The project enhances one’s practical skill and it involves both the electronics and telecommunication engineering fields. Theoretical knowledge such as circuit theory, electronic circuit and principles of telecommunication learned through several courses offered by the electrical and telecommunication program is applied in the project.
