Simulating Cyber Operations: "Do you want to play a game?" - Bryan Fite (Circle City Con 2015 Videose 2015) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Simulating Cyber Operations: "Do you want to play a game?"
Bryan Fite

Circle City Con 2015

It?s not polite to hack your neighbor but how else can a national-CSIRT and critical enterprises train and assess cyber warriors? Simulations and games are an effective approach. However, there are many cyber security games, competitions and training platforms. They vary widely in effectiveness, assessment capabilities and flexibility. In addition, most are closed and proprietary in nature. What is needed is a publicly adopted cyber operations simulation standard to support training, assessment and tool & technique development across platforms. I will share an innovative way to describe Cyber Operations Simulation elements by abstracting the primitives and describing their interaction via a Scenarios Definition Language. I will describe the methodology & approach, fundamental object types and teach attendees how to run their own simulations.
