Engineer R&D – Cyber-Range Platform

Context:

TELECOM Nancy has acquired a professional cyber-range platform (DIATEAM
HNS, https://www.diateam.net/). This platform permits to build, deploy
and experiment realistic and complex computing infrastructures
(enterprise networks, industrial networks, internet of things), from
which it is possible to simulate and analyze different scenarios of
attacks and defenses. It serves as a support to both training and
experimentations in the area of cyber-security. In the context of the
H2020 CONCORDIA European project (including more than 50 academic and
industrial partners from this domain, https://www.concordia-h2020.eu/),
we participate to the design and development of contents for these
cyber-range platforms.

Position and missions:

For the development of our activities over the cyber-range technological
platform, we are looking for a research and development engineer, who
will intervene on projects related to this platform, in particular the
H2020 CONCORDIA project.

Your missions will be mainly focused on:
    • The design and development of practical exercises on the
cyber-range platform, including the elaboration of specific topologies
and the enrichment of the platform with new building blocks,
    • The elaboration of an attack/defense catalog that will follow the
different steps of the cyber kill-chain and will take into account the
in-depth defense paradigm, with scenarios that are both offensive (red
team) and defensive (blue team),
    • The writing of technical documentations, and of different supports
for teachers and learners,
    • The development of pedagogical contents (videos), or specific
technical needs with respect to the technological platform,
    • The organization of events related to the cyber-range platform
(capture-the-flag),
    • The administration of the cyber-range platform in link with the IT
services,
    • The supervision of student projects developped on the platform,
    • The participation to the meetings and to the deliverables of
CONCORDIA.

You should perform some technological intelligence, in order to follow
continuously news and evolutions regarding the cyber-range domain. You
will be facing challenges, and therefore will have to show commitment,
passion, and creativity.

Profile:

Expected technical skills:

    • Master level (at least) in the area of computer science,
    • Software development and network/system administration,
    • Knowledge/experiences in cyber-security (e.g. vulnerability
discovery, simulation of attacks, deployment of protection tools (e.g.
firewalls, intrusion detection systems).

The participation to cyber-security challenges, or exercises in
cyber-security (such as Capture-The-Flag) is a plus.

Expected human skills:

You are proactive, rigorous, and autonomous. Your technical skills will
enable you to be immediately operational in your position. You take
initiatives, show curiosity, resourcefulness, and like to take up
challenges. You have a level of English allowing you to evolve easily in
an international environment. You have a strong interest in new
technologies and cyber-security.
