Personally, I think it would be beneficial to teach students a well known auditing methodology (NSA IAM/IEM, Octave, 
etc.). After that has been established, have the students use the methodology in a lab environment and provide an 
auditing report that would be useful for a typical corporation. 

This may not encompass the entire scope of what you have to teach, but I think it would be a good start. This would 
better prepare students on how to report their findings to management.

Subject: Graduate CS Pen Testing Class

Hi All,

I've been asked to teach a graduate level computer science course on
network auditing and penetration. I'm hoping to make the class as
hands on as possible, covering material from enumeration to system
hacking. What practical scenarios should be included in the course
content? I'd like to cover a range of popular tools but at the same
time make it more than a script kiddie class. Each scenario should
teach concepts as well as getting students familiar with different
security tools. If you were to one day have these students either
conducting audits for you or working for you what skill set would you
like them to have?

Thanks
