back to article CyberBattleSim: Microsoft's open-source Holodeck in which autonomous attackers, defenders battle it out

Microsoft has open-sourced software that pits machine-learning-powered network intruders against automated defenders inside virtual networks. The tech, dubbed CyberBattleSim by its creators at the Microsoft 365 Defender research team, is a Python-based OpenAI Gym affair, and sets up pretend networks loaded with vulnerabilities …
