Authors: Andreas Rieb and Ulrike Lechner (Universität der Bundeswehr München, Germany)

Abstract: In the Serious Game Operation Digital Chameleon red and blue teams develop attack and defense strategies to explore IT-Security of Critical Infrastructures as part of an IT-Security training. Operation Digital Chameleon is the training game of the IT- Security Matchplay series in the IT-Security for Critical Infrastructure research program funded by BMBF. We present the design of Operation Digital Chameleon in its current form as well as results from game #3. We analyze the potential and innovation capability of Operation Digital Chameleon as an Open Innovation method for the domain of IT-Security of Critical Infrastructures. We find that Operation Digital Chamaeleon facilitates creativity, opens the process of IT-Security strategy development and – despite being designed for training purposes – opens the process to explore innovative attack vectors.
