LTU Vitrual War Hack Lab Project: Configuring a Virtual-Based Environment: Attacking and Defending Client-Server Systems Architecture for Student Learning
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Client-Server Architecture Systems are the mostly used systems architecture worldwide. They entail providing different service resources to user clients via networks and other peripheral connections. The aim of this study was to establish a distance lab environment where distance students and other practitioners could do remote practical testings of client-server products for learning purposes. Throughout this work our theme was on development of remote virtualized client-server topology and subjects it to attack environment for students (distance) learning of security breach concepts of Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability (CIA) in a practical virtualized lab environment. Main objective of this design research was “to implement a distance based laboratory (virtualized environment) where security for client-server model in a remote and virtualized network of Windows Platform can be implemented and tested. Although security experts argue that systems safety will never be absolute, our main trigger factor was to establish virtualized lab were key security settings will be practically tested and implemented remotely by students for protection of services, data, and other peripheral computer communications. This was part of Lulea University of Technology Virtual War Hack Lab Project to develop a platform for student practical learning and understanding. Our system layouts comprised of virtualized environment of routers, servers, clients connected via an internet and remotely subjected to attack mechanism.
