Purdue University announces opening of SOL4CE Cyber/Cyber-Physical Laboratory

Purdue University’s CERIAS (Center for Education and Research in Information Assurance and Security) has announced the addition of a laboratory facility that increases Purdue’s cyber-physical research, emulation, and analysis capabilities.

The SOL4CE (Scalable Open Laboratory for Cyber Experimentation) is a collaborative initiative between CERIAS, the nation’s oldest and preeminent interdisciplinary cyber/cyber-physical security research institute, and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Sandia National Laboratories. 

SOL4CE is a resource facility, available to faculty and students across the Purdue University system, for quick modeling and simulation of cyber and cyber-physical systems. The laboratory also will facilitate extended experimentation of evolving systems and architectures for security, resiliency, privacy, autonomy and machine learning development and application.

The first project deployed on the SOL4CE laboratory is research being conducted by Dongyan Xu, director of CERIAS, and researchers at Sandia National Labs.

Workshops are being hosted by CERIAS and Sandia to demonstrate the new lab’s capabilities and foster new research ideas. While the new lab’s primary goal is advanced research, development, and system design, it also will facilitate advanced curriculum development by Purdue faculty, and will be utilized by the DOE for gamification exercises to encourage students to pursue national security and cybersecurity careers.
