Cyber challenges are a way for educators to train and assess the desperately needed cyber security professionals of the future. Creating these challenges can be time consuming, error prone, and/or cost-prohibitive. To address these issues, the University of Rhode Island has created the freely-available Open Cyber Challenge Platform (OCCP). To maximize ease of use and re-use of the challenges created on this platform the OCCP required a tool to automate the configuration and deployment of virtual machines. This thesis project created such a tool that allows OCCP challenge implementers to create virtual machines that are reconfigurable and sharable with the OCCP community.
