The TCP three-way handshake can be used as a pedagogical tool when teaching network security in an introductory course in information security. I use it as a common theme that runs through various network security topics so that it is easier for students to grasp new concepts while reinforcing old knowledge. This paper describes the rationale for so doing and shares examples of some learning tools I created in this respect.
