The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 [gcide]

ice
   n.

      [coined by Usenetter Tom Maddox, popularized by William Gibson's cyberpunk SF novels: a contrived acronym for ?Intrusion Countermeasure Electronics?] Security software (in Gibson's novels, software that responds to intrusion by attempting to immobilize or even literally kill the intruder). Hence, icebreaker: a program designed for cracking security on a system.

      Neither term is in serious use yet as of late 2003, but many hackers find the metaphor attractive, and each may develop a denotation in the future. In the meantime, the speculative usage could be confused with ?ICE?, an acronym for ?in-circuit emulator?.

      In ironic reference to the speculative usage, however, some hackers and computer scientists formed ICE (International Cryptographic Experiment) in
      1994. ICE is a consortium to promote uniform international access to strong cryptography.
