Information assurance (IA) programs are becoming increasingly viable options for computer science and IT students in universities across the US. Although the sophistication of and number of attacks on the cyber domain increase every year, the foundational principles that IA professionals need to learn to advance security and implement new technology remain stable. This article looks at jewels of security education that remain timeless in terms of their teaching value in IA. Secure communication and protocol analysis are key facets of security education, and previous research provides some foundational tenets thereof. These and other jewels give timeless principles to IA professionals for interpreting current practical applications and theoretic limits found in the larger body of security-related research.
