This is an IEEE sponsored project to provide cloud-based tools to cybersecurity professionals and students to gain hands-on experience with fundamental security concepts, proper implementation of cryptography, design flaws, exploits, state-of-art security research projects and other artifacts. The project took an integrated approach that combines the IEEE’s Center for Secure Design, reports such as “Avoiding the Top 10 Security Design Flaws” and IEEE’s Symposium on Security and Privacy. In Try-CybSI, these tools and artifacts are dockerized and packaged in isolated, secure containers. This solved the real-world problems that these artifacts tend to be short-lived and version-specific. The project has a simple user interface and can operate on any OS as long as you have a physical keyboard attached to the system.

Our annual information security symposium will take place on April 3rd and 4th, 2018.
