Emulating a network of IoT devices in an apartment building




Is it possible to emulate an IoT device as a virtual machine? I’m currently writing a security audit tool for IoT devices but I need to be able to emulate a LAN with IoT devices in. These don’t need to function, but they do need to emulate that the service is running and the ports are open.

I, unfortunately, cannot connect them to my home network due to being in an apartment building that uses it’s own ISP and as such we don’t have access to the router and any device on the network cannot speak to other devices. I am open to purchasing an access point for my desktop and allowing smart devices/raspberry PI(s) to connect that way, if that’s a possibility. Open to suggestions, thanks!
