How HCI design influences web security decisions
Radke, Kenneth, Boyd, Colin, Margot, Brereton, & Gonzalez Nieto, Juan M. (2010) How HCI design influences web security decisions. In Proceedings of OZCHI 2010 : Design – Interaction – Participation, CHISIG, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Queensland.
Even though security protocols are designed to make computer communication secure, it is widely known that there is potential for security breakdowns at the human machine interface. This paper reports on a diary study conducted in order to investigate what people identify as security decisions that they make while using the web. The study aimed to uncover how security is perceived in the individual's context of use. From this data, themes were drawn, with a focus on addressing security goals such as confidentiality and authentication. This study is the first study investigating users' web usage focusing on their self-documented perceptions of security and the security choices they made in their own environment.
