WITTS: White Team Training Suite
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
ABSTRACT: To maintain superiority in the cyber domain, the Air Force is preparing the next generation of cyber warriors. Running trainees through realistic exercises on cyber ranges is a highly effective method for preparing warfighters for cyber operations. However, training platforms and cyber missions are numerous, varied, and rapidly-evolving. What few tools exist to assess student performance in training exercises have only basic functionality, and lack the flexibility to work with the wide array of training environments. To improve the effectiveness of cyber exercises, ATC-NY will build the White Team Training Suite (WITTS), a flexible system for objectively monitoring cyber training events and generating briefings and debriefings for instructors and trainees. WITTS uses agents deployed on an exercise network to collect exercise data and features interactive dashboards that assist white team members with planning and monitoring exercises, and with assessing trainee performance. BENEFIT: WITTS employs a number of innovations in agent technology and monitoring interfaces to deliver an affordable, effective cyber training assessment capability. Its modular agents support a wide variety of cyber platforms and missions, eliminating the need for expensive or inadequate custom-built solutions. WITTS can therefore cost-effectively improve the quality of cyber training events for any enterprise. Cyber exercises are used by the DoD, government, critical infrastructure, and commercial sectors, and all represent target markets for WITTS.
