Ethical Hacking: Teaching Students to Hack
Source: East Carolina University
One of the fastest growing areas in network security, and certainly an area that generates much discussion, is that of ethical hacking. The purpose of this paper is to examine the literature regarding how private sectors and educational institutions are addressing the growing demand for ethical hacking instruction. The paper will also examine the opportunity for community colleges in providing this type of instruction. The discussion will conclude with a proposed model of ethical hacking instruction that will be used to teach a course in the summer semester of 2006 through the continuing education department at Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute within the North Carolina Community College System.
