We used an iterative process to design firewall warnings in which the functionality of a personal firewall is visualized based on a physical security metaphor. We performed a study to determine the degree to which our proposed warnings are understandable for users, and the degree to which they convey the risks and encourage safe behavior as compared to text(More)
We used an iterative process to design personal firewall warnings in which the functionality of a firewall is visualized based on a physical security mental model. We performed a study to determine the degree to which our proposed warnings are understandable for our participants, and the degree to which they convey the risks and encourage safe behavior as(More)
The Windows Vista personal firewall provides its diverse users with a basic interface that hides many operational details. However, concealing the impact of network context on the security state of the firewall may result in users developing an incorrect mental model of the protection provided by the firewall.
