Network Configuration Change Simulation

SUMMARY You can use a topology model to define virtual network models based on your existing network. You can create a network model that is based on a series of modifications that can be combined and configured.

You can use a topology model to determine the effect of configuration changes on your network by using a simulation.

Topology models provide the following key functions:
  • Create virtual topologies for testing network changes.
  • Simulate attacks against virtual networks.
  • Lower risk and exposure to protected assets through testing.
  • Virtual network segments that you can use to confine and test sensitive portions of your network or assets.
To simulate a network configuration change, do the following tasks:
  1. Create a topology model.
  2. Simulate an attack against the topology model.
