Abstract:

As the level of conflict increases in the new battlefield of our nation's infosphere, the demand for better training of cyber security professionals is critical. In response, a small number of efforts have attempted to provide network defense training simulators to prepare students for real-world conditions. Most of these early efforts have fallen short of the mark, generally by oversimplifying their simulations and thereby providing only a basic level of instruction. ATC-NY envisions a modular cyber defense simulation framework that will allow for a level of detail previously only achievable using real networks. We will use this framework to create CYber DEfense Simulation Trainer (CYDEST), a training simulator designed to provide students with a realistic and dynamic training experience and to give trainers a flexible instruction platform that allows them to teach at any level. CYDEST will incorporate a number of innovations, including (1) an automated evaluation facility, (2) simulation of hosts as well as the network itself, (3) a realistic and unrestricted training interface, and (4) remote accessibility to students.
