CSS SPEAR cloud enables students and researchers to work with malware in an environment which is protected from the rest of the UW Bothell systems.  CSS SPEAR cloud serves as a natural platform for publishing research datasets from IA research projects. These datasets are by their nature resources which require great care such that dangerous code is made harmless and information is maintained as a useful academic resource. CSS SPEAR Cloud will also be used for UW Bothell CSS and CIAC research, next generation honeypots, defining and developing virtual world security awareness training, SCADA environments, and testing the deployment of the trusted identities in cyberspace.
