A cyber range  is an interacting, simulated representation of real-world systems used for training IT and cybersecurity professionals, assessing incident response processes, and testing new technologies. A cyber range recreates the experience of responding to a cyber-attack by replicating the security operations center (SOC) environment, the organizational network, and the attack itself. As a result, a cyber range enables hands-on training in a controlled and secure environment.
The thesis will be structured as follows:
- state-of-the-art analysis of existing cyber ranges;
- design of a reference architecture of a cyber range;
- first small-scale implementation of the cyber range;
- testing and validation.
