François Lesueur is an Associate Professor at Université Bretagne Sud (Vannes, France) where he teaches network and digital security. He is particularly interested in security of distributed/federated systems and fights for an empowering security rather than an enslaving one.
MI-LXC is a platform to simulate an internet-like environment (BGP routing, DNS hierarchy, several organizations, pre-configured services such as mail with graphical clients, ...), currently composed of 28 hosts distributed in 10 AS. It can be used for network security training and can also serve as a substrate to deploy and demonstrate network security tools. It is based on LXC using the infrastructure-as-code principle and runs as a VM on a standard laptop.
