Most of the engineering programs especially computer science have two or more security related subjects, but lack of active learning and practical experience in the classroom. Cryptographic algorithms which solve security problems relay on specific mathematical areas such as modular arithmetic, probability and number theory. Unfortunately students feel difficulty to follow the concepts due to the underlying sophisticated mathematics; it is necessitating a fundamental change in the users' curriculum. Interactive pedagogical tools need to be introduced incrementally along with standard content in a way that makes the standard content easier to learn and vice versa.
