Abstract

ATC-NY’s CYRIN Next-Generation Cyber Range provides an effective, hands-on, remote cybersecurity training environment with accurate monitoring. CYRIN provides trainees with virtualized instances of exercises to provide a realistic and safe environment, so that attacks can be simulated without compromising the integrity of the system.  At the same time, CYRIN automatically monitors each trainee’s progress through learning objectives by examining machine and network states. Traditional cyber range exercises frequently require months or more of setup, causing them to often be out of date in an accelerating threat environment. CYRIN’s sophisticated exercise authoring environment allows new exercises to be created in minutes, quickly responding to newly discovered cyber threats or adversary tactics.  In this Phase I effort, we will engage with Air Force end users to bring them this rapid exercise authoring capability to lower costs and better train future cyber defenders against new threats.
