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 :)

Hi all,

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
   2) Routing
   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!
