The DoD currently employs red teams to conduct network infiltration and security training for network administrators and operators. Red Teams provide the most realistic and thorough training to defend against real-world threats and we are developing a system to mimic this highly trained adversary based on the proof of concept framework developed by CDR Will Taff and LCDR Paul Salevski. This thesis is meant to perform a verification and validation analysis of the suitability of the MALWARE Mimic concept as a methodology for conducting network administrator network security training and awareness, alleviation of red team availability constraints, and network user security awareness training. We also develop a strategy by which the effectiveness of the MALWARE Mimic system for increasing such network security awareness and elevating the information assurance posture of distributed command networks can be measured.
