Hello! I would like to apply at Wireshark for GSoC 2013. I have checked the
list of projects and interested in (and capable of doing) some of them. The
project I am mainly interested in is "Wireshark for Android". I have a good
android development experience and have used libpcap to develop simple
sniffer application.

I wanted to know whether we can apply for multiple projects at wireshark to
increase our chances of selection? Though my main interest is Wireshark for
Android I want to apply at all the projects I am capable of completing. The
mentors can select me for the project they think I am suitable for.

The other projects that I am interested are:
a) Capture Permissions

b) Process Information

c) New Export Objects

d) Improved Fuzzing

e) Packet Editor (cli)

My relevant experience is as follows:
Programming Languages: C (Excellent), Java (Good), Python (Good), Shell
Scripting (Good)

Relevant Projects:
SimpleSniffer: It is a very basic sniffer for *nix programmed in C using
the libpcap library.

Network Monitor: An Android application with basic functionality such as
port scanning, network discovery etc.

- I have good experience with Android application development.

- I have been using Wireshark regularly since about 4-5 yrs.

- I have won two security courses at ethicalhacker.net for my participation.
Offensive Security wifu

- I am currently enrolled in MS by Research program at one the top
university of my country. My area of research currently is malware analysis
and android security.

- I am presently working as a Research Assistant in one of the projects in
my university where I am responsible for evaluating and maintaining the
security infrastructure.

- I have good knowledge of vulnerabilities such as buffer overflows, Heap
overflows, format string attacks and return-to-libc attacks.

- I have good knowledge of Network and Web security.
