Elevation of Privilege (abbreviated “EoP”) is a card game developed by Adam Shostack with assistance from many patient Microsoft developers, and it is designed to provide a fun and educational introduction to the concepts and practice of Threat Modeling.

What kind of card game for Devs would you want to see?

 

Thanks!
