Teaching Cybersecurity with DeterLab
January/February 2012 (vol. 10 no. 1)
pp. 73-76

The DETER project aims to advance cybersecurity research and education. Over the past seven years, the project has focused on improving and redefining the methods, technology, and infrastructure for developing cyberdefense technology. The project's research results are put into practice by DeterLab, a public, free-for-use experimental facility available to researchers and educators worldwide. Educators can use DeterLab's exercises to teach cybersecurity technology and practices. This use of DeterLab provides valuable feedback on DETER innovations and helps grow the pool of cybersecurity innovators and cyberdefenders.
