ABSTRACT

Expressing an Information Security Policy within a Security Simulation Game   [open pdf - 1MB]

"The Center for the Information Systems Studies and Research (CISR) at the Naval Postgraduate School has established a broad program in computer and network security education. The program, founded on a core in traditional computer science, is extended by a progression of specialized courses and a broad set of information assurance research projects. A CISR objective has been improvement of information assurance education and training for the U.S. military and government. Pursuant to that objective, CISR is developing a computer simulation game, CyberCIEGE, to teach computer security principles. CyberCIEGE players construct computer networks and make choices affecting the ability of these networks and the game's virtual users to protect valuable assets from attack by both vandals and wellmotivated professionals. CyberCIEGE includes a language for expressing different security related scenarios. A central part of this language is an ability to express a variety of different information security policies."
