Abstract: - Users benefit from the rapid expansion of computer network systems, but they will also face new security threats. The problem of network security encompasses both network system and data security. Tools and techniques are used to scan the network and its devices for vulnerabilities during network scanning and vulnerability testing. Due to the identification of weaknesses, this aids in the refinement of any organization's security policy. In this project we make use of the portability feature of a Raspberry Pi and configure it as a Network Scanner using Kismet Tool to be able to scan networks wherever possible given the permission. We further add an additional feature to the Raspberry such that the raspberry pi can act as a personal cloud storage. It’s becoming increasingly popular to use online storage with personal cloud providers such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or Amazon Drive. With these services, users can store their files in a cloud. This can be accessed at any time, using nothing more than a computer or mobile device with internet access. However, it’s not uncommon for users to raise concerns regarding the reliability of their cloud hosting provider. A common criticism is that customers don’t know who else has access to the saved data, and whether the files are really removed from the server when they’re deleted. This is particularly important when it comes to the storage of sensitive data. As the protection of your privacy becomes harder and harder, you may be thinking of moving your files to a private cloud storage and in this case, then this Raspberry Pi is perfect for such.
