Pentagon building Internet simulator to practice cyberwar

"A model of the Internet where the Pentagon can practice cyberwar games -- complete with software that mimics human behavior under varying military threat levels -- is due to be up and running by this time next year, according to a published report.

"Called the National Cyber Range, the computer network mimics the architecture of the Internet so military planners can see the effects of cyberweapons by acting out attack and defense scenarios, Reuters says."
