The Cyber Range is an interactive, remote accessible computational platform of virtualized digital resources which can be weaved together to aid and solve experimental, research, educational, and operational challenges of cyber enabled systems. The Cyber Range will offer remote accessible educational content delivery and collaboration platform, a virtual platform to experiment any complex cyber enabled architecture, and experimentation infrastructure for security of cyber-enabled systems. In addition, it will provide the ability for compliance testing and validation framework for PCI-DSS, HIPPA, NERC etc., a competition framework for security and computing competitions, and a research testbed for cyber augmented and/or enabled systems.
The instructional lab for cybersecurity has 20 computers that are equipped to handle the requirements of the cybersecurity curriculum. This lab is supported with a private cloud infrastructure. It also has 1 instructor computer station with large screen monitors to accommodate a maximum of 32 students.
The research lab is equipped with:
This research lab houses the “cyber-stadium” which is a private cloud that can host multiple cloud based operating system mix to deliver a variety of research outcomes. Current research topics being pursues within this lab are:
