From Jargon File (4.2.0, 31 JAN 2000) [jargon]:
   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 early 1999, 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.

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (15Feb98) [foldoc]:
      1. {in-circuit emulator}.
      2. {Intrusion Countermeasure Electronics}.

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary [easton]:
      frequently mentioned (Job 6:16; 38:29; Ps. 147:17, etc.). (See {CRYSTAL}.)
