This CyberRange project represents the first open-source Cyber Range blueprint in the world. This project provides a bootstrap framework for a complete offensive, defensive, reverse engineering & security intelligence tooling in a private research lab using the AWS Cloud.

This project contains vulnerable systems and a toolkit of the most powerful open-source / community edition tools known to Penetration testers. It simply provides a researcher with a disposable offensive / defensive AWS-based environment in less than 5 minutes.

Domains of Knowledge

This open-source research lab provides a bootstrap learning platform for Technologists studying any one of the “Big-3” technology skills.

  • Cyber Security
  • Cloud Computing
  • DevOps

This project supports 7 gigantically broad domains of technical knowledge.

  • Offensive Security
  • SecDevOps
  • Architecture & Engineering
  • Vulnerability, Change, & Configuration Management
  • Quality Assurance
  • Auditing – Processing, Systems, Applications
  • Development – Infrastructure / Web Applications

Mission Statement

The ultimate expectation is to emulate the quality, format, and presentation of the Syracuse University Cyber SEED Labs while creating strategic hubs of Cyber Security Center-of-Excellence Partnerships where the gap between enterprise experience & academic learning is addressed by focusing training paths on people, products, and process.
