This project encompasses the design and implementation of a hardware realization of Ethernet packet analyzer with a customized search engine that is specific for the home automation industry. This analyzer will be at the gateway of a network and analyze Ethernet packets as they go by. It will keep a record of all packets sent to the gateway. I will also perform a real-time specialized search of the data packets for information that is for the home automation and not the computer network. This system is a stand-alone real-time network analyzer capable of decoding Ethernet protocols. The research project includes reviewing several different types of control architecture, clarifying search engine, protocols, and network interface controllers.
