In this report, we plan a set of exercises that can be used to introduce students to IT-security, specifically Mechanical Engineering and Software students to determine if they can be integrated into an already existing course or be used as a supplement.
The exercises are designed to model a smart factory, where each exercise focuses on a different type of attack that a smart factory can be vulnerable to, this includes man-in-the-middle, phishing and denial of service attack.
With a better understanding of the vulnerabilities of smart factories, the Mechanical Engineering students will be better equipped to handle a future, where smart factories are widespread.
