  1. Follow the Study Schedule and work with the Topics (Modules) in Interact as they provide a "scaffold" for your learning in this subject.
  2. Develop a detailed CapstoneProject Proposal and Planusing project management software (as listed in the Study Schedule) and the skills you have acquired from IT Project Management to develop a project plan with aWork Breakdown Structure(WBS), milestones andGantt chart. These tools may help.
    1. MicrosoftProject Pro (;
    2. Open source tools like GanttProject (;
    3. OpenProj(
    4. OpenProject (
    5. ProjectLibre (
  3. Begin using the 'project blog' as a tool beyond theweekly progrees reportsfor your chosen emerging technology topic:
    1. The blog is a way to not only "think by writing" and make your notes but also store project files and links in a cloud-based service.
    2. Consider sharing the site with your peers as a way to tell a story and harness each others knowledge.
  4. The blog is ideallyupdated each weekwith 3 or 4 entries for documenting your project notes and as the foundation for editing and writing the Capstone Project Report. An ideal blog entry will have around XXXXXXXXXXwords XXXXXXXXXXwords a week).
  5. Group Work OPTION for Assessment Items(Not recommended for Online Study mode students): The Group Capstone Project Proposal and Plan is submitted by the team of three (3 maximum group size) for a group mark on a project proposal and plan that clearly indicates the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), Role and Responsibilities of EACH member to carry an equal share of the load in the project work.

This assessment task will assess the following learning outcome/s:

  • be able to interpret and evaluate an overview of recent trends in emerging technologies and innovation.
  • be able to apply project management and information and communication technologies (ICT) tools to plan, execute, record and present their research and project work as a capstone experience.

TheCapstone Topic Project Planallows for a broad range of project areas like systems administration, database systems, IT security, mobile technology etc. Often the project has a sponsor and is linked to your interest or workplace needs. The proposal has a research component(Assessment Item 3 Annotated Bibliography) so in some cases you may need to find a supervisor willing to accept you as a candidate.

TheLearning Outcomesbeing assessed in this item include how you interpret and evaluate an overview of recent trends in emerging technologies and innovation and begin to to plan, execute, record and present your research and project work as a capstone experience.

YourCapstone Project Proposal and Planwill be evaluated with aseries of questionsthat you can use as aChecklist:

  • Is the capstone topic area appropriate?
  • Has the Project Blog been setup?
  • Has there been sufficient justification of the choice of the topic?
  • Is there enough scope for a sufficiently deep/complex analysis?
  • Is the scope appropriate for what might be reasonably expected in the capstone project subject?
  • Is the methodology proposed clear?
  • Are the deliverables clearly set out?
  • Are the deliverables sufficiently complex to justify a pass in this activity?
  • Is it likely that the proposed activities can be reasonably carried out?
  • Is it likely that the student will have access to the necessary resources to do a satisfactory job?
  • Is the time line proposed realistic?

Network Access Control
Problem Statement
ABC Company is medical record keeping company and the company need to update the day by day patient information and doctor recommendation and company having issue about the data security. In this project ABC Company implemented the medical smart card that help to reduce paper work and all patient health history store in chip and for smart card having issue about the network security .The company require to more security for patient record and record not to be share and access by anyone so our proposal for the requirement is implementation of NAC (Network Access Control).
Network Access Control (NAC) approach is beneficial aspect of security, NAC implementation meaning is enforcing the company organization's security policies on all devices seeking network access. The our proposal is for Network Access Control (NAC) allows only compliant and trusted endpoint devices, such as PCs, Laptops, and PDAs, onto the network, restricting the access of noncompliant devices, and thereby limiting the potential damage from emerging security threats and risks. NAC will provide a powerful, roles-based method of preventing unauthorized access and improving network resiliency.

The purpose of this project is to implement Network Access Control (NAC) on the organization network infrastructure. Our aim is of NAC is to prevent compromise of the hosts that connect to a network or other network resources and thus the network itself. NAC will be designed for scalability utilizing a vendor neutral solution. NAC will serve the main, campuses as well as the remote access vectors such as VPN services. NAC will eventually extend to State ideal identity management.
The project Network Access Control has been require continues feedback that and for this smart card implementation we use spiral or incremental model according to requirement this approach is appropriate. The spiral model working methodology is all requirements are divided into several parts .This incremental or spiral model working is based on Cycles. In this approach each module passes through the requirements, design, implementation and testing phases. The spiral or incremental model working continues till the complete system will completed.
For the purpose of development we need investigation techniques that help to understand system requirement and what kind of problem will arise in the development process and collect the data. We will develop a best proposal for network access control .There is lots of techniques for investigation the problem
I. Interviewing and Listening
II. Administering questionnaires
III. Analysis procedures and other documents
In this project as have lots of confusion the Interviewing and Listening is best for this as that help to clear the confusion about the smart card and smart card software implementation and for this we conduct interview and we talk all the member and listen carefully what they face a problem regarding system. The question is varying from individual to individual. We gather all the data that we require for the system. We prepare a...
