Abstract

Cybersecurity operators have to keep up with a world that's constantly changing, and they may lack the tools, time, and access to learn how to face actual threats. Simulated environments may not appear or behave the way they do in real life, and classroom-based approaches don’t provide the big picture. Throughout this talk, our team of researchers and engineers discuss the solutions we developed to help achieve a new level of realism in simulated cyber environments. Specific solutions include better Internet emulation, improved live network traffic, and human-like behavior of host systems. This set of tools recreates the real world in a controlled environment, providing the platform where cyber operators can enhance their security skills.

Attendees will learn how to

  • enhance a bare-bones, cyber-emulation environment using open source tools
  • provide the best training possible by simulating your own networks  so that employees can learn how to respond to real-world threats
  • get help from the SEI to implement these tools in your own environment
