The Free Range

The Free Range

This range is a free resource for regional partners that has been developed by the City of San Diego, students at Point Loma Nazarene University and cybersecurity professionals in the region. It provides a collaborative, cloud-based platform for training, development and testing of cybersecurity tools in a safe and controlled environment.

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.
