I would strongly consider matching Wireshark and a MITM attack subject(Appz id: Cain & Abel). I cant belive how no body
knows what MITM is and how one would use this technique to steal info. It is really important. Also, show some
consideration to IP spoofing. I would not spend days on these 2 subject, but a few demo & details would greatly open
the eyes of fresh IT eyes :)

I am a student. Who is doing project under a professor. In our
university from next year a new course on NETWORKING is going to be
started. My task is to design "lab experiments" for that course.
Can you please suggest few experimental ideas, that will help a newbie
in Networking field.
Note: "Network Security" is also included.
Three things that students are not getting in network courses that are CRITICAL to the real world:
1) Low level understanding of protocols
3) Packet filtering
Some tools I would recommend as absolute requirements for the course:
snort (if you get into IDS)
quagga (for routing)
If you get into protocol errors / DOS:
Hope this helps!
