Project goal:

I was assigned to use gRPC (the future of APIs) to create a distributed banking system. The bank has many branches. Customers can update their balances through "withdraw" and "deposit" operation. They also can "query" their balance. The branches communicate with each other to ensure consistency. All interactions between the customers and branches should be done by gRPC.


I started by defining the messages that construct gRPC requests and responses. Then, I made the python functions that are used to create the "Branch" instances where the "query", "withdraw" and "deposit" operations are implemented. The, I worked on how to achieve consistency among branches by propagating the requests (branch to branch communication). After that, I worked on the Python library "multiprocessing" to create different instances of customers and branches.
gRPC-based Banking System
This project is built to enhance my Networking knowlege as well as my Python scripting skills. The program assumes that there is an attacker trying to send malicious traffic to a victim in a local network and receives the output of that traffic. This program uses Scapy to to manipulate ARP traffic to deceive the attacker. It basically impersonates two virtual hosts (victim and reflector, each with IP/Eth addresses) and use their addreses to manipulate the attacker into thinking he is attacking the victim while he is actually attacking himself. (The reflector replays his attack to him and make the victim send the response). For example, if the attacker tries to SSH to the victim, the result will be SSHing into the attacker's machine.
