[Internet Society Blogs] Usable Security Highlighted at NDSS 2017

A number of seminal papers appeared towards the end of the 20th century calling for more attention to be paid to the human in the security loop. For example, Anne Adams and Angela Sasse’s “Users are not the Enemy ” and Mark Ackerman and Lorrie Cranor’s « Privacy critics: UI components to safeguard users’ privacy . » The research field of Usable Security was thereby launched, and quickly garnered interest amongst academics and in industry. Almost two decades later this field has achieved independent status with a number of conferences and workshops being dedicated to this research field.
