Most approaches currently used for Education on Internet Security and Information System Security are excessively static and lack the flexibility that the education requirements of security professionals demand. They can greatly benefit from the use of specific laboratory environments. In this paper we show how a tool which allows to generate scenarios to be used in education on system and network security, based on virtualization technologies could be used to improve such scenarios because of its open, distributed, modular, scalable and flexible features. An example scenario is described and finally some results showing the benefits of its use in undergraduate computer security courses are shown.
