Abstract

There are rarely enough time, laboratory, or equipment resources available for students to explore network construction, provision of services, demand analysis, and information assurance issues. Students need a software tool in which they can rapidly construct networks to satisfy particular scenarios and get rapid feedback. The ability to represent defensive preparations and attacker behaviors raises awareness in the information assurance arena. Making the tool web-deliverable enables a new level of outreach to potential students of networking and information assurance. Faculty and research scientists at the United States Military Academy are developing the Military Academy Attack/Defense Network (MAADNET) to provide the network construction and evaluation tool, including the ability to model attack and defense, and to create a web-based competition format to reach out to prospective students at every level of expertise.
