The Nebraska University Center for Information Assurance (NUCIA) supports four labs. These are refered to as the Security Technology Evaluation and Analysis Laboratories (STEAL).
STEAL One is designed to be an open laboratory for students to use both for coursework and individual exploration. The lab is fully configurable, with many different operating systems and application sets to choose from. Our goal is to create a flexible environment that can be used to create or simulate any desired computing capability or environment.
STEAL Two has been designed to be a hands-on instructional laboratory. It has been sized to allow entire classes (max 28 participants) to collectively engage in academic Information Assurance exercises of all kinds. As with STEAL-1, the lab has been designed to be completely flexible, to allow users to simulate most any type of environment imaginable. A set of dedicated servers provides backbone services, such as DNS, DHCP, PXE, TFTP, routing, and the like. Each of these services is configurable as well, in order to allow for more accurate simulations.
STEAL Three is a place where NUCIA students, scholars, student workers, and others congregate and work. Designed as a lounging area, STEAL-3 generally has a "laid-back" atmosphere where people can relax, discuss information assurance topics, get answers to questions from faculty, and attend meetings and ad-hoc information assurance events.
STEAL Four is a virtual laboratory rather than a physical environment. It is provided as a secure, distance resource for classes, research, and various events.
STEAL One, Two, and Three are located at the Peter Kiewit Institute, Room 350, 361, and 364 respectively.
