This work studies the applicability of configuration management tools, to design and develop practical challenges inside the cybersecurity field. Through the tools called Puppet and Packer, a series of templates have been developed that allow to generate a tests scenario. This scenario has been developed to include vulnerable services and security measures already implemented. From this scenario, the flexibility of the solution and the time savings achieved have been evaluated. Through this evaluation it has been determined that the use of this tool is a viable option for developing scenarios both small scale focused on teaching field and big scale used in cybersecurity events.
