About the Client
National Institute of Technology Mizoram, also known as NIT Mizoram, is one of the 31 National Institutes of Technology in India. Located in Aizawl, NIT Mizoram was one of the ten new NITs established by the Ministry of Human Resources Development (part of the Government of India, via order no. F. 23-13-2009-TS-III, dated 30th October 2009 and 3rd March 2010). The primary objective of NIT Mizoram is to provide education through research and training in undergraduate and graduate programs. The school was declared an “Institute of National Importance” by the Indian Parliament. Students are admitted through the All India Entrance Exam – Joint Entrance Exam (JEE Main).
We started our company as a non-profit organization back in 2014 while we were still at NIT Mizoram. We named ourselves LushaiWeb back then. This project was completed during that time only. We are requested to build a web application for the institute. We are very grateful to be offered a chance to build such an important thing for the institute.
The college just had a new network infrastructure with a Gigabit Ethernet connection. The whole network was protected with a strong firewall, Fortinet’s Fortigate; anyone who tries to connect to the college network needs to sign in to the network using their unique username and password. Since hundreds of users need to connect to the internet, assigning usernames and passwords to everyone manually was a very tedious job.
The then Head of Department of Dept. of CSE, Dr. Partha Pakray, and Mr. Praveen Kumar, the Network Engineer contact us to create a system that will be used to automate the assignment of credentials to users.
The flow of the system is as follows – Students, faculties, and staffs go to the portal, register themselves using their institute ID. The network administrator gets those requests, and verify them. Those verified will be assigned their username and password, and they will receive these credentials in their mail or through SMS. They will use these credentials to log in to the network to access the internet.
We use PHP, MySQL, and some frameworks and API to get this to work. The system is hosted on the institute’s on-premise server.
