During this session, participants will look at how to build a Blue Team Lab using free and inexpensive tools and equipment. Free and open source software such as VirtualBox, pfSense, and Security Onion can be installed on older hardware with the addition of inexpensive network cards, providing the student or new enterprise defender with a lab environment to better research and develop the skills necessary to create a defensible network and respond to incidents. Foundational security services such as NTP, Syslog, and Netflow installed on Ubuntu will be examined as well.
