There are four academic labs in the ESL Global Cybersecurity Institute. The Air Gap Lab, the Network Security Lab, the Davenport-Hatch Foundation, Inc. Security Lab, and the Security Lab.
Airgap Lab and Server Room (pictured)
The Air Gap Lab features a network of computers that is cut off from access to both the RIT network and the Internet to facilitate a wide variety of security exercises without risking harm to the broader community. In the server room, multiple sets of network devices and servers are installed for students to conduct blue, red, and white team exercises. The server room is adjacent to, but separated from, the Air Gap so as to provide a quiet lab environment for instruction.
Network Security Lab
This lab is used to teach courses in network security and wireless security. It is equipped with high-performance state-of-the-art networking equipment such as routers and switches, and wireless communication devices.
