"What is it? It’s a minor miracle. It’s a window of opportunity. It’ll give you about eight seconds undetected. But it’ll cost you." - Hernando Cortez[1]

Its purpose is to offer its users approximately eight seconds of invisibility and anonymity when hacking into protected servers.[1] This seems to be done by forcing corporations to expend unforeseen resources on the rezzing of Ice.
