A lab environment is being built using equipment from maritime industry technology providers. Based on known issues from maritime and other ICS/SCADA industries, vulnerability research will be conducted in the lab environment. Technical research will be conducted into AIS spoofing in combination with exercises and other research. 

Also, a virtual ship Honeynet is being built to study current active scanning of maritime technology. A Honeynet is a network set up with intentional vulnerabilities hosted on a decoy server so as to attract hackers.
