The Cyber Security Simulation Service (CSSS) is a platform that provides a simulation environment modeling the impact of cyber attacks and related countermeasure in tactical networks exploiting the software defined networking (SDN) paradigm. CSSS integrates a generator of tactical scenarios, a network simulator, a graphical user interface, and a real SDN controller. The scenario generator, network simulator and user interface interact with each others exploiting a NATO standard called High Level Architecture (HLA); the real SDN controller instead interacts with the simulator by exploiting the system in the loop approach and can interact with the graphical user interface through a proprietary protocol. The CSSS can be used as training tool and/or Decision Support System by cyber and IT operators in tactical contexts.
