Despite the best efforts of security researchers, sometimes the static nature of authorisation can cause unexpected risks for users working in a dynamically changing environment. Disasters, medical emergencies or time-critical events can all lead to situations where the ability to relax normal access rules can become critically important. This paper(More)
While security is a critical component of information systems, at times it can be frustrating for end users.
