DARPA has begun the task of building a scale model replica of the Internet for testing purposes. The multi-million dollar project will enable testing of possible cyber war attack scenarios and then reset the board in what is called a ‘virtual firing range’.

The project is currently in the conception stage with key US defense contractor Lockhead Martin believed to be working on the project.Last month Lockheed itself fell victim to a cyber hack.
