The second workshop on Cyber Range Technologies and Applications (CACOE) will be organized in conjunction with IEEE EuroS&P 2020.
The Cyber Range Technologies and Applications (CACOE) workshop aims to bring together researchers advancing, developing and maintaining cyber ranges (e.g., cyber-physical labs, clouds and other virtual platforms) supporting cyber security training, tests and exercises. Cyber ranges have emerged as a response to the need of high-fidelity environments for testing, training, exercising capabilities related to cyber security. They are typically based on virtualization technology and are used to set up complex computer networks, simulate events, and observe phenomena in a controlled environment. However, to set up realistic tests, training or exercises in a cyber range is often difficult, expensive and error prone. It can be seen as system administration on steroids, where a few range engineers are to rapidly build and manage networks of the size that it typically takes a whole IT department to manage. There are many issues related to technical support tools (e.g. deployment of virtual machines) that are yet to be solved and many management issues (e.g. of event data management) that are to be solved. Furthermore, the application of cyber ranges to tests, training, and exercises is relatively new. Methodologies for constructing large events, standards for experiments, and the utility of cyber ranges to different applications is largely unknown.
