  • Patent number: 7406606
    Abstract: An apparatus, a method, and a computer program are provided for distinguishing relevant security threats. With conventional computer systems, distinguishing security threats from actual security threats is a complex and difficult task because of the general inability to quantify a “threat.” By the use of an intelligent conceptual clustering technique, threats can be accurately distinguished from benign behaviors. Thus, electronic commerce, and Information Technology systems generally, can be made safer without sacrificing efficiency.

  • Publication number: 20080161083
    Abstract: An approach for utilizing a gaming environment for evaluating security policies is presented. An administrator uses a mapping system to map policy tags corresponding to a policy manager with game tags corresponding to a game manager. In addition, the mapping system configures a participant's game based upon gaming attributes and history data, such as assigning incentives to particular roles or locations, using customized terrains, and configuring screen resolution. Once the mapping system maps policy tags to game tags and configures the game, the mapping system invokes the game and allows the game participant to play the game. While the game participant plays the game, the mapping system identifies policy events, such as a security breach, and rewards the game participant accordingly.
