The Malware Analysis and Forensics Lab


Malware analysis is an important part of preventing and detecting future cyber-attacks. The Malware Analysis and Forensics Lab will provide capabilities to safely execute, analyse and reverse engineer malware in a secure environment. It will provide a segregated, air-gapped, secure environment to test, replay, characterise and document advanced malicious activities. The Malware Lab will receive information about vulnerabilities and threats in the form of actual malicious code from the Range’s Cyber Rader and Threat Intelligence Ecosystem. Students can use the Lab’s malware analysis capabilities to analyse the code or images to discover how to secure or defend systems against the threat.  They will use the malware analysis tools to analyse its attack lifecycle, from the initial exploit and malware execution path to call-back destinations and follow-on download attempts, therefore gaining important forensic details to enhance the Range’s threat intelligence.
