Intrusion Countermeasure Electronics

(security, jargon)Intrusion Countermeasure Electronics - (ICE) A contrived acronym for security software, coined by Usenetter Tom Maddox and popularised by William Gibson's cyberpunk SF novels. In Gibson's novels ICE software responds to intrusion by attempting to literally kill the intruder.
