Abstract:

Raising the awareness of information security has been the focus of DOD and other government agencies in recent years. There is a need for an effective means of educating and training personnel in the topic of Information Assurance. CyberCIEGE offers an approach to training by engaging the personnel in an interactive simulation-based network security game. Each game scenario in CyberCIEGE is designed to impart some network security principles and Information Assurance concepts to the players. This research developed a scenario definition file for the CyberCIEGE game engine to illustrate and train players on matters related to information protection using compartmentalized Mutlilevel Secure MLS systems. The specific area of research is on the protection of sensitive information and operational commands for command and control systems. Through playing this military-based scenario, players can learn about the importance of physical security, the different strategies to protect sensitive information, and the use of MLS systems to provide controlled access to sensitive information. Testing of this game scenario was conducted through the creation of detailed solutions and incorrect
