The price of belief: Insuring credible trust?

Paul Wernick, Bruce Christianson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Today, the majority of distributed system users are not systems programmers, nor do they aspire to be. The problem with existing access control mechanisms is not that they don’t work, it is that users despise them and will not interact with them in the way the security model requires. We argue that this is not primarily a user-education issue; instead the user interface needs to be re-factored in a way that will involve a radical change to the way security is modelled.
