A platform offering simulation and emulation capabilities
A simulation core that drives the simulation scenario populated with simulated devices and
emulated (Hardware In the Loop) devices as well
On the periphery of the network are physical IoT devices interfaced through a specific
gateway and simulated IoT device at the same time
Red represents attack traffic from a penetrated video camera
Green represents normal traffic to the server in the emulation domain
A machine learning system gets data from the simulator through a virtual
interface of the router simulation model.
The tower indicates a wireless data connectivity through LTE etc
NetSim Emulator Working:
The 'entire network (real + virtual)’ was created in NetSim. And then a mapping of real devices to
equivalent simulated devices in NetSim was done through the NetSim UI
The balance virtual devices, in the simulation domain, will be purely virtual. This is the way real
traffic will 'interact' with 'virtual' traffic inside NetSim, undergo network effects (delay, loss, error
etc) and then head out from NetSim again into the real world.
A pcap capture was logged from the 'virtual router' in NetSim.
The ML system analysed the logged pcap files and suggested suitable configuration changes
