Capture-the-Flag in a Box Cyber Security Exercise with NAWCTSD

Early access viewing of our new demo live from Tech Grove in Orlando, FL with members of the SCALABLE Team and NAWCTSD

Originally aired July 23, 2021 at 11:00 am ET

Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) identified a need for a small footprint, yet high fidelity network defense training system for use in conducting capture-the-flag exercises at Navy and Marine Corps bases throughout the country. To achieve this Capture-the-Flag in a Box Cyber Security Exercise Capability, NAWCTSD partnered with SCALABLE Network Technologies (SCALABLE) to leverage their network digital twin development tools and capabilities.

Watch the webinar to learn about the cyber defender exercise scenario, developed by NAWCTSD and SCALABLE, that closely parallels live operations being conducted as part of the Multi-Nation Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) 2020 Exercise. There will also be a live demo where you can learn about:

  • identifying cyber attacks based on communication performance and packet content, identifying nodes/networks that cannot be trusted, and identifying sensors providing faulty targeting information.
  • incorporating high fidelity, physics-based network digital twins into future training environments to counter potential impacts resulting from degraded network operations and/or cyber vulnerabilities on overall mission outcomes.
  • Capture-the-Flag in a Box Cyber Security Exercise capability being incorporated into future NAWCTSD training events in an easy-to-use, flexible, portable and cost-effective manner.
