Usability of Security: A Case Study,
This study studied the usability of PGP 5.0 to discover whether that was sufficient to enable non-programmers who know little about security to actually use it effectively, and concludes that PGP5.0 is not sufficiently usable to provide effective security for most users.
Making Security Usable
It is proposed that the usability problem for security is difficult to solve precisely because security presents qualitatively different types of usability challenges from those of other types of software, and it is suggested that making security usable will require the creation of user interface design methods that address those challenges.
Safe Staging for Computer Security
The technique of safe staging for computer security is introduced, which is adapted from conventional user interface staging to meet the specific needs of computer security in consumer software.
