This paper describes a project that the author has begun and which he would like to share with the Information Assurance education community. The idea is to create a detailed fictitious scenario that is intended to educate students about the intersection between information assurance and software engineering. The scenario covers a variety of topics, including basic security concerns in software development, how security needs to be integrated into software processes, and work culture issues that can have a major impact upon the security of a product that an organization produces. Professional responsibilities and ethics are also important foci of the scenario.
