    Sandia National Laboratories - California Site - has intiated a program by
    which students taking courses in information protection can gain
    experience with real-world attacks and defenses while at the same time
    helping to characterize and build improved defenses against tools used to
    attack computer systems and networks. 
    The "Colege Anti-Crackers" program provides access to Sandia's HEAT
    computer network which contains more than 70 computers whose sole purpose
    is cyber attack, defense, and analysis.  Students who are taking classes
    from authorized institutions are granted access for supervised experiments
    with off-the-Internet attack tools.  The results are published to the
    Internet in the form of standard descriptions of attacks, detection and
    differentiation techniques, and patterns for pattern-based intrusion
    detection systems.
