Defense Experimental Research (DETER) Testbed Fact Sheet


The Defense Experimental Research (DETER) testbed project enables cybersecurity researchers to run experiments on a secure "virtual Internet." The testbed provides contained environments that allow researchers to safely test advanced defense mechanisms against "live" threats without endangering other research or the larger Internet. The project was originally jointly funded by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Science and Technology Directorate and the National Science Foundation.
