Information Security college-level education efforts received a financial shot in the arm late last year with the announcement of a federal funding program to train an information security workforce. In this paper, we address issues surrounding development of a viable Computer Science, Information Security laboratory that meets the three-pronged needs of research, education and outreach in a research university setting. We show how configuration of the computers can be controlled in the shared laboratory environment and discuss the software resources necessary to support the laboratory goals.
