Axis S ys tems , Inc. Castle Rock, Colorado, Systems Consultant Worked on database and Web development for a research project involving data about musical instruments.
2004 - 2005
Nor thr op Gr umman; Aurora, Colorado; Software Engineer Worked on a network traffic analysis tool based on FreeBSD and Linux platforms. Responsibilities included: • Kernel extensions to support packet analysis and capture as well as gathering network statistics in a form usable by the standard kernel reporting tool sysctl . • a management architecture for maintaining an administrative daemon system with several single function daemons connected via IPC. The purpose of these daemons is to control the rules whereby analysis and capture is effected, to gather and report captured packets and to provide statistical information about the functioning of the system. • a overall management daemon to ensure highly available service from all the afore mentioned daemons and to permit control of and process information reporting about said individual daemons.
