Cyberlabs

The Dependable Systems Cyber Laboratories research infrastructure provide a versatile environment focused on domain specific cyber security education, research and testing. Our domains include general information technology, automation, electrical systems and medical environments. The use cases range from normal domain specific education to attack and defense exercises and testing of security features of various devices and software. Laboratories provide cross-disciplinary environment which can be used to tackle the cyber challenges of critical infrastructure now and in the Future.

Dependable Systems CyberLabs is joint effort of Tampere University Dependable Systems platform participants. The laboratories bring their special expertise and experts to create more than sum of separate environments. The expertise areas are

Automation CyberLab (DSA CyberLab) consists of industrial automation and control systems running the critical infrastructure. It is build keeping in mind the long lifecycle and the challenges it will create.

Information Security (Computing) CyberLab (DSC CyberLab) consists of network, secure communication and computing infrastructure. This is used for teaching as well as  for research with small and large enterprises as well as international research partners.

Electrical Engineering CyberLab (DSEE CyberLab) consists of electricity production, distribution, storage and consumption in the Future Smart Grids.

Medical Technologies CyberLab (DSM CyberLab) consists of medical technologies used in Health Care and private Health. This is part of Health and Assistive Technology Laboratory, HeAT.

Tampere University of Applied Sciences School of Industrial Engineering (in Finnish: teollisuusteknologian osaamisyksikkö) has multiple kind of lab environments that can be used in cybersecurity related studying and research purposes (TAMK TT Labs). ICT Lab is in the core of everything and consist of separated network infrastructure, servers, virtual computers, computer classroom, different IoT devices, network devices etc. It has been build as a modern version of the Purdue model and offers connections and services to other special labs like CyberLab, Process Automation Lab, Machine Automation Lab and FieldLab.

Together these form a real life critical infrastructure which consist of energy production, distribution, consumption, health care and related information technology systems in todays information society.
