Furnished with state-of-the-art hardware and software to permit for participation in cybersecurity attack and defend exercises, the Cybersecurity Engineering Laboratory (CybEL) is isolated from the outside world.

Designed to meet instructional and research needs in the area of cybersecurity, a visualization infrastructure is offered to apply visualization techniques to attack related data, as well as to display information about ongoing attacks.

The CybEL currently serves the following research areas:

  • Aviation and Aerospace Cybersecurity
  • Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems Security
  • Safety and Security Analysis for End-to-End System Assurance
  • Cloud/Fog Computing and Software-Defined Networking Security
  • Machine Learning Applications to Systems Assurance
  • Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Control, Safety Assurance, and Security

For instructional purposes, this facility is the primary laboratory for the courses in the M.S. in Cybersecurity Engineering. The facility is also used for classes in the B.S. in Computer Science and other programs offered by the Department of Electrical, Computer, Software and Systems Engineering.
