After the studies, students can apply security solutions for discovering security threats and for protecting against them. You are also able to manage countermeasures against denial-of-service attacks

VirtualLab is a virtual laboratory service running on the CyberLab datacenter. VirtualLab is now widely used in cybersecurity- and information networks education, as well as in RDI activities (Research, Development, Innovation). It replaces almost all laboratory work done with physical devices. For example, before a three-person student group had only a few devices to use, but now one student can have a multiple complete virtual ”worlds” each including over 20 virtual devices. These are called ”laboratories” or ”scenarios”.

The VirtuaLab can be used from XAMK’s own computers as well as from any device that has a modern HTML5 capable web browser.
