The Cyber Defense Technology Experimental Research (DETER) network provides the necessary infrastructure — networks, tools, and supporting processes — to support national-scale experimentation on emerging security research and advanced development technologies.
The DETER objectives were to:
- Design, build, and operate a network testbed specifically to support security research
- Catalog software tools to help create, monitor, and analyze complex security experiments
- Facilitate the creation of a collaborative community of security researchers.
