Cyber Range

Accessible online through a secure virtual private network, the Free Cyber Range has dozens of systems available for defending against attacks and conducting ethical hacking. It includes open source cyber tools and pre-built training exercises to perform vulnerability assessments, penetration testing and intrusion detection. Users can create custom exercises with the goal of building a library of use cases for others in the San Diego region to utilize. The range can also be used for technology demonstrations and validation testing of information systems, among other things.

Haiku (World of Haiku & Haiku Pro)

The Cyber Center of Excellence (CCOE) and Haiku Cyber Range have developed a cloud-based cyber range available through a web browser to allow training of offensive, defensive and forensic cybersecurity skills based on real-time government and industry input. This tool allows for quick creation of new ranges for specific training and tabletop cyber events, including government-sponsored classified collaborations. The range also connects to a cybersecurity training suite that provides a safe and immersive virtual environment for ethical hackers, or white hats.

Designed by and for ethical hackers, the Haiku Cyber Range is the cybersecurity equivalent of a flight simulator: users of all levels will develop real-world skills in a game-like virtual environment. It has been used by the U.S. government for hackathons, both domestically and internationally. The range is also supported by the annual SoCal Cyber Cup Challenge – hosted by the San Diego Chapter of the National Defense Industrial Association – that has helped thousands of students develop and bolster their defensive cybersecurity skills for over a decade.


CyberCatch offers the Cyber Incident Simulator – the world's first 3D online tabletop exercise simulation to test the cyber awareness and incident response plan for an organization business in 90 minutes.
