Abstract

Nowadays, keylogging and network eavesdropping are very common network attacks and important topics in information security education. This paper discusses what academics need to know about keylogging and network eavesdropping attacks. The paper does so in the hope that it will encourage the teaching of these security topics when offering modules on information security. Then, the paper discusses the threat of teaching keylogging and network eavesdropping attacks and proposes steps to minimize the risk of inappropriate student behavior and reduce institutional liability.
