GHOSTS is a non-player character (NPC) orchestration generator that creates a wide range of realistic characters who produce network traffic that appears authentic. The NPCs perform many functions, such as creating documents, accessing systems, browsing the web, running commands, and more. This tool helps cybersecurity experts test their skills by training in a realistic environment. This collection contains the GHOSTS software for download as well as documentation about the tool.
