The Montana Cyber Range

Hands-on interactive cybersecurity training for individuals and teams

Our flexible, multi-system Cyber Range exercises give trainees the opportunity to practice cybersecurity incident identification, analysis, and remediation on virtual networks that mirror real-time operating environments. From small single- or dual-node scenarios to large segmented multi-node configurations, the Montana Cyber Range is a great place to build and refine your cybersecurity skills.

Scenarios are Linux- or Windows-based, and participants gain experience with industry-standard tools including Security Information and Event Management (SIEM: Splunk, QRadar, ArcSight); Firewall Management (Palo Alto, pfSense, Check Point); Network Traffic Inspection (Wireshark); as well as operating-system-specific utilities.

Many activities are designed for a single user working asynchronously. Others are team-based (accommodating up to 10 participants for an optimal learning experience) and are guided by a facilitator. Available exercises and topics include:

  • Network and Firewall Configuration
  • Cryptology
  • Threat Analysis
  • Ethical Hacking
  • Digital Forensics
  • CentOS, Ubuntu, and Kali distros
  • Packet Capture and Traffic Analysis
