In this talk, I will talk about two of my open-source projects (github.com/seed-labs): the SEED Labs and the SEED Emulator. The objective of the SEED Labs is to develop hands-on lab exercises for security education

These labs can be used by students to gain first-hand experiences on attack and defense. We have developed 40 labs, covering a wide spectrum of topics, including software security, system security, network security, web security, mobile security, and cryptography. These labs are now being used by over 1000 institutes in more than 60 countries. Over the last 7 years, we have organized workshops that have trained more than 800 instructors to use the SEED labs.

The SEED Emulator is a Python framework that can be used to create emulators of the Internet, allowing us to run a mini-Internet inside a single machine. The emulators can be used for hands-on learning in cybersecurity and networking. The project provides essential building blocks of the Internet in the forms of Python classes, including Internet exchanges, autonomous systems, BGP routers, hosts, networks, and DNS infrastructure. Building blocks for cybersecurity-related systems, such as Blockchain, Botnet, Darknet, etc. are also included, so users can easily deploy them inside the Internet emulator. In the talk, I will show how to create a mini-Internet emulator and demonstrate its wide range of applications.

Bio:

Dr. Wenliang (Kevin) Du is the Laura J. and L. Douglas Meredith Professor at Syracuse University.  He received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1993 and Ph.D. degree from Purdue University in 2001. He founded the SEED-Labs open-source project in 2002. The cybersecurity lab exercises developed from this project are now being used by over 1000 institutes worldwide. The book he published in 2017, “Computer & Internet Security: A Hands-on Approach”, has been adopted as a textbook by more than 200 institutes. His research has been sponsored by multiple grants from the National Science Foundation and Google. He is a recipient of the 2013 ACM CCS Test-of-Time Award and the 2017 Academic Leadership award from the 21st Colloquium for Information System Security Education.
