This talk provides an overview of the development and usage of the Cyber Security Simulation Portal (CSSP), a web application built on the Ruby on Rails framework which provides a portal to manage cybersecurity simulations in the cloud. The objective of this effort was to create easy-to-build, easy-to-destroy environments which users can access remotely. Such environments can be useful in training exercises for competitions such as the Mid-Atlantic Collegiate Cyber Defense Competition. By utilizing cloud computing and APIs, training resources can be allocated on demand which can greatly reduce costs of setup, deployment, delegation, and usage.
