The DoD Cybersecurity Range provides an operationally realistic, persistent, DoDIN environment to exercise cyber warriors, test and evaluate new capabilities, and train network defenders.
The range, located in Stafford, Virginia, was established as part of the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative and has been operational since 2009. The Cybersecurity Range is sponsored by DISA and operated by the Marine Corps. It is one of several DoD ranges governed by the DoD Enterprise Cyber Range Environment Charter.
There is no cost to users of the cybersecurity range’s network environment, which can be configured to support the needs of individual and group exercises, training, and other events. A small sample of the range’s capability offerings include: traffic generation, threat injection, simulated DoD and Internet enclaves, post-event data collection, and simulated DISA Internet access points and datacenters. Range operators will also work with mission partners to import custom enclaves and provide support services.
