The objective of this project is to provide an overview of how to create a secure network test environment using virtual machines with Red Hat CentOS 7. Using virtual machines to create a secure network test environment simplify the workflow of testing several servers including network segmentation, network path redundancy, and traffic control using a firewall. This study suggests a set of guidelines for building a secure network test environment that includes a Domain Name Server (DNS), Web Server, File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Server, and a firewall. The documentation provided in this project is primarily useful for IT students looking to recreate a similar environment of their own and to practice special skills needed within their field of study.
