Just getting started in InfoSec and need some guidance on virtualization? Used virtual machines before, but want to expand to a more complex, dedicated virtual lab? This talk will cover the numerous hardware and software options you should consider, and will discuss both simple and complex configurations. The focus will be on setting up a lab that is home friendly, inexpensive, and as flexible as possible. Offense and defense setups will be discussed, as well as recommendations for virtualization software, server hardware, and networking gear. You will leave with a list of VMs to use, an understanding of the benefits of hosted vs. bare metal hypervisors, different virtualization packages, and how to build an inexpensive lab that emulates a multi-tiered corporate environment.
