Computer Networking Lab

The lab offers capability to build and configure local area networks, both wired and wireless. This lab is divided into four clusters and each cluster has two sub-clusters with three adjacent PCs. A cabinet with at least one server, firewall, two routers, two IP Phones, access points, WLC, and five switches is dedicated for each cluster.

UTP and Console cables are available for students to connect these devices to a LAN, WAN, and they can connect the event to the internet to install any additional required software or tool. This lab service is mainly used for some courses such as NSSA 241 Introduction to Routing the Switching, CSEC 462 Network Security and Forensics, NSSA 245 Network Services, and many other courses.

  • Building and configuring local area networks.
  • Building and configuring wide area networks with VLSM subnetting.
  • Experience a MAC overflow attack and then follow the recommended measures of configuring the switches in order to mitigate this attack. 
  • Experience an ARP spoofing attack and then follow the recommended measures of configuring the switches and routers in order to mitigate this attack.
  • Experience a DHCP Starvation attack that could be used to conduct a MITM attack to facilitate some sort of Phishing attack. Students then follow the recommended measures of configuring the switches and routers in order to mitigate the root cause of these attacks
