Project Abstract:

The Open Cyber Arena Virtual Lab aims to enhance our reach and ability to deliver high quality, experiential cybersecurity learning in the form of virtual labs, accompanying videos and instructor-controlled, virtual lab classrooms for their students. This project will scale up our existing Open Cyber Arena (2018 SUNY IITG Tier 2) with a focus on teaching students technical and cybersecurity literacy in a safe and secure manner. The proposed curriculum material to be developed addresses the need for introductory, hands-on virtual cybersecurity labs that are easy to deploy and use by remote instructors and learners. Where technologically feasible, these virtual labs will also be available for download to be run as a virtual machine locally on a student's computer.
