Students: James Heiney, Rushabh Vyas Mentor: Connie Justice
RunLabs project is designed to allow rapid creation of virtualized environments. User supplies the tool with json configuration file and the tool creates the virtual machines with the specified network configurations. In addition to that, the tool creates VNC sessions for each virtual machine, which allows students to be able to work on their exercises. It has a WebUI for administration. Future development includes release of pre-made virtual exercises and configurations. The project was started in order to allow instructors to make labs simpler.

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