Classroom Projects to Support e-Learning in Computer Networks and Security
This paper presents some projects in the area of network security suitable for online and/or in-class delivery in relevant courses. The developed projects consider the E-Learning environment and provide support to allow distance learning without requiring the students and professor to be in the same physical location. Visualization of network security is the hype of 2009. Visualization itself is not the goal, but the goal is to make security easier to understand and integrate into systems. Network analyzers visualize and reverse-engineer what is really happening in the network, instead of relying on network architecture charts and other planning documents, which might not have any indication of the realities in the network.
