HW #1 (Web Browsing Analysis), due March 14, 2014 at 12h in box outside of office 383
For this HW you need to install a virtual machine and SW on your
computer that is very big (several GigaBytes).
Please go with your computer to the reception of Eurecom, ask
for the memory stick with the SW and copy it on your computer
and return immediately the memory stick.
Note: The document with the TP description and a manual is also
on the USB key.
Please download and read this document
