What's the name of that effect that puts a faint lightening around the edges of active objects in a detailed world for increased visibility?

You can really see it around the tips of the plane wings in this footage:

Does anyone know the name of that post processing effect?

Note that in photography, halos are a sign of poor post-processing and are avoided.

Also known as silhouette lighting.

Simplest implementation is some constant/color times dot product between surface normal and eye vector. Something like that.
