Abstract This paper presents an application of active learning methodologies to teach cryptography and security protocols for undergraduate IT students. This course is offered to sophomore/junior students and is based upon the recently approved Computing Curricula CC 2001 by IEEE Computer Society/ACM taskforce. We illustrate the teaching methodology to cover the security related topics such as encryption/decryption methodologies, security and protection, cryptographic algorithms and standards, and computer crime. An example lesson covering the DES is included.
