Enhancing Network Security Education with Research and Development Content

  • Network Security (CNT 4403) is an undergraduate course offered for the IT and Computer Science majors at the University of Central Florida. In the recent offering of this course, we enhanced its teaching by adding research-oriented content. In this paper, we discuss our enhancement effort and give two examples. Through our research and graduate teaching, we identified important security aspects of the anycast technology that are overlooked by traditional textbooks on network security. We added content on anycast to give the undergraduate students better experience with emerging security applications. Similarly, we added content on the experimental Robust ECN protocol to give students exposure to new trends in combating malicious user behavior.
