Abstract: Working with source code wrote by others is always a challenging task. It could be potentially be malicious code. The analysis process required understanding of the programming language used. It became more difficult as everyone has different coding styles. However, execution of untrusted code is an issue even if the code is understandable. Nobody would like to run potentially malicious code on his or her own PC or laptop. With the help of cloud-based infrastructure and application containers, code execution can be done in an isolated environment. This project feature a cost-effective, web based secure platform for students to do a quick testing of their programming assignments. It provides a place for students to check the correctness of their code online. It will definitely decreases the workload of professors and protect their PC from the untrusted code. Based on the idea, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) is used. It is cost-effective due to its elastic nature and pay-as-you-go pricing model. It is also a flexible and adjustable model. In short, this project feature a cloud-based infrastructure with application containers that consists of front-end web application, back-end server and database. The details of each part of the application will be described in different sections of this report.
