Abstract

This paper discusses labs and a three-stage learning process to help students learn the contents of cyber security. A system infrastructure that includes a number of identical, secure, and isolated learning environments is developed. Each learning environment includes a set of cyber security labs with each lab consisting of two sub-labs: attack and defense. These labs help students learning of theoretical knowledge and allow them to practice hands-on activity of attack and defense. Each lab involves a three-stage learning process: learning, assessment, and engagement. The learning environments are implemented by using virtualization technology. Multiple virtual machines (VMs) are implemented in each learning environment and those machines serve tasks of attack and defense. In addition, the system infrastructure facilitates a competition environment encouraging students to interact with each other. Students who successfully launch attacks will gain points; conversely, students who do not successfully implement a mechanism to prevent the corresponding attack will lose points.
