Building Your Own Kickass Home Lab

  • Jeff McJunkin
  • Tuesday, January 30th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Building your own home lab is a great way to keep up with the ever-changing IT world. Well, how does one actually go about building a home lab? That's the part that gets more complicated. Do you really need a whole rack full of off-lease servers and some enterprise-grade switches? No! New-ish high-end servers and workstations are surprisingly powerful and capable of mocking up a pretty complicated network, including attacker systems and even incorporating wireless communications. In this talk, Jeff will walk through both the hardware and software stacks he uses and recommends, including a number of ways to incorporate Microsoft software without paying exorbitant licensing fees. Jeff will also outline a basic lab design that can be used for a number of scenarios.
