Abstract

The field of computer security education is very important in the computer security industry. Theory without practical learning will not be complete and perfect in the world of science and technology. The students should be exposed to the hardware and software commonly used in the information technology industry. This project will expose students to the characteristics of hackers who hack into security systems and study the method or methodology to be used by hackers to break computer security system. This paper proposes a framework process model to develop a Honeynet Laboratory and this framework can be use as guideline to develop a lab as an aid in the teaching and learning process. This lab can also be used in researching Honeynet and to study malware. Students can apply theoretical knowledge acquired from classes in lab rooms. This hybrid model consists of eight steps; understanding the legal, security and privacy issue of Honeynet, design Honeynet architecture, identify hardware and software for build Honeynet laboratory, setting-up and installation hardware and software, deployment of a single Honeypot, construct a Honeynet, analysis of captured data and analyzing new signatures of attack. The outcome of this paper shows the hybrid model which is the combination of academic and industrial model to develop Honeynet Laboratory in an educational environment.
