Hacker Research Laboratory

This cloud-based, networked and isolated lab houses various networking devices such as servers, firewalls, intrusion prevention/detection systems, and routers. Students use the lab to gain a good understanding of many security concepts, including:

  • data center security
  • information technology (IT) forensics
  • malware analysis
  • penetration testing
  • secure communication

In this facility, students gain hands-on training in IT security from two perspectives: an IT security officer and a criminally motivated hacker.
