CEROC Cyber Range

The Range

The CEROC Cyber Range is a unique combination of hardware, software, andCyber Range Network talented individuals creating a dynamic environment supporting the education, research, and outreach efforts of the center servicing local and remote projects in the virtual environment.  The range, including PTerraDactSL (Pseudo-Terraform Domain Specific Language) which is responsible for dynamic environment creation, was developed in-house by a group faculty, staff, and students associated with the center.

Education

The range supports the cyber training environments for the CyberEagles Defense Interest Group, CyberEagles Offense Interest Group, and CyberEagles CTF Interest Group.  These training environments support the peer mentoring efforts of these groups as well as development of student competition teams for events such as CCDC, CPTC, and SFSCon.

The range also provides infrastructure support for a number of cybersecurity courses in the computer science curriculum including database management, IT security, reverse malware engineering, and ethical hacking.
