Midshipmen Train Cyber Operators in Hawaii
Midshipmen 1/c Lucas Foppe (ECE), 1/c Danny Flack (SCS/SIT dual), and 2/c Lamont Brown (SCS) of the USNA Cyber Security Team (CST) traveled to Hawaii in October 2016 to provide some hands-on training in advanced network analysis to a group of military and civilian DoD cyber operators. The midshipmen prepared a course website, lecture material and notes, demos, exercises, labs, daily homework assignments, and review sessions for a two-day seminar conducted at Naval Station Pearl Harbor. Attendees included members of Navy Information Operations Command Hawaii, a Cyber Protection Team, National Security Agency (NSA) Hawaii, a USMC Radio Battalion, Navy Special Warfare Group Three, and the Coast Guard Cryptologic Group. The midshipmen discussed analysis techniques for identifying features in cellular and wireless traffic, part of their ongoing networks research, under the supervision of LCDR Jeremy Martin of Cyber Science and Captain Erik Rye (USMC) of Computer Science.
