CCEAP – a tool for pattern-based covert channel education

Teaching network information hiding is considered a challenging task. Students must first master network protocols, followed by the basics of information security, and finally steganography in networks.

After developing a new tool called CCEAP (Covert Channel Educational Analysis Protocol), we now released a first version of it and experiment with the tool in university education.

CCEAP is a protocol that is vulnerable against several covert channels and that eliminates the need to teach several other network protocols in advance (and to switch between them) just to explain network information hiding fundamentals.
