This paper reviews 3 case studies related to network security. The first two exercises deal with security planning, including classifying data and allocating controls. The third exercise requires more extensive TCP knowledge, since the exercise includes evaluating a computer power-up sequence… but with interesting results!

For example 20 years ago if someone wanted to steal from someone or rob a bank they would need either a gun or a weapon now a day’s all they need is a computer and they will have access to just about anything they need.

There were three case study exercises are that have been very useful in providing students a foundation in network Security. All three each include a PowerPoint lecture and active-learning exercise, which serves as the case study. Three case studies related to networking include: Designing Information Security: Classifies information by confidentiality and criticality. Planning for Network Security: Determines services, connection establishment directions, security classifications, and access control and...
