Abstract

This project describes the design and development of a game-style interface for Core Security’s Core Impact Pro software. We identified ways to improve the current interface with commonly used techniques from games and developed a prototype in which we implemented these techniques to make Core Impact Pro easier to use and understand. A user study with the prototype showed that users rated our interface better than the current interface and within twenty minutes of use were on average able to answer more questions regarding the state of the network accurately.
