The Disaster Network is a miniature network consisting of old networking devices (currently all cisco) and several old-model Raspberry Pi type Bs. They have 256MB of ram. Network devices are named after specific man-made disasters, Pis are named after natural disasters.

The main router, Titanic, has IP All others are NATed are have ips in the 192.168.3.X block. They are divided into the main subnet, 1-127, and the PRZ (Poorly Routed Zone) on 128-254.

It currently contains:

Titanic - 3640 Model Cisco router. Main router for the network.
Valdez - Cisco Catalyst switch. Switch for most of the RasPis, and the main part of the network.
Bhopal - Very old 1600 Model Cisco router. Router for the PRZ of the network.

Pandemic - Raspi running Darkbasic raspbian. Will function as the primary KDC
Famine - Raspi running Darkbasic raspbian. DNS Server
Tsunami - Raspi running Darkbasic raspbian. Currently nothing, will be LDAP Server

Operating Systems

There are a wide variety of possible linux distributions and other operating systems available for Raspberry Pi. The DisasterNet will hopefully contain quite a few of them as it progresses. It has so far contained:


Found at: http://www.linuxsystems.it/raspbian-wheezy-armhf-raspberry-pi-minimal-image/

Used in: Pandemic A minimal raspbian distro, based on wheezy armhf.

Comes pre-configured to use a 1G sd card, and requires reformatting in order to use all available space.

Moebius Linux

Found at: http://moebiuslinux.sourceforge.net/

Not currently used

Another raspbian based distro, appears to be more recent than Darkbasic, and may not require re-sizing. Will likely be used for Famine.


Setup Icinga
Look into FreeIPA
 Install 389 (forestfire)
 Investigate dogtag
Setup backup DNS server (drought)
Setup backup KDC (epidemic)
Add Cisco 1600 router for PRZ (bhopal)
Kerberos enabled logins through PAM
Look into using gentoo, arch, and fedora
