I would strongly consider matching Wireshark and a MITM attack

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!
