Building a Cyber Training Range on a Budget - Robert Guiler (ShowMeCon 2018) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Building a Cyber Training Range on a Budget
Robert Guiler

ShowMeCon 2018

Want to hone your packet analysis, blue team, or pentesting skills at home? Don't have the budget to afford a server, let alone cloud training services? This talk will explore the options you have available on a single computer capable of hosting 2-3 virtual machines. Emulating hundreds of hosts, building a replica internet, and generating pseudo-random traffic are all a few scripts away! By utilizing virtual interfaces, existing packet captures, and even free internet connected training resources, anyone can build a massive, custom training range within a few hours. To get the most out of this talk, attendees should have a basic understanding of bash or python scripting, virtual machines, and the linux operating system.

Bio: Robert Guiler is currently employed as a cyber security team lead for the United States Air Force. He was previously the cyber security training lead for 120+ Air Force personnel performing penetration tests, network health assessments, and network hunt. He has a computer science degree from the United States Air Force Academy and enjoys Capture the Flag events. Robert currently holds numerous certifications, including CISSP and OSCP.
