Networks inherently facilitate interconnections of resources and people, even if they are remotely located. While this easily facilitates the communication between physically separated devices, it poses a huge vulnerability. Any remotely connected resource now has access to the network, making network security a necessity. While implementing a defense strategy, it is important for the network administrator to understand the impact an attack could have on the network. Emulators help in understanding how an unforeseen attack can handicap a network. Most of the emulators today are software emulators. While software emulators help to a certain extent in this regard by emulating small scale networks, it is hard to emulate a large scale attack on a large scale network. This thesis aims to design a hardware based solution to this problem which not only overcomes the major drawback of software emulators, but is also controlled, repeatable and fast.
