Can you build usable systems that are secure? Secure systems that are usable? You can. You must. And this book brings together the principles you need to do it.
Lorrie Faith Cranor and Simson Garfinkel have brought together pioneering contributions from nearly three dozen experts in the field. Those contributions range from research and theory (the psychology of user security, guidelines for secure human-computer interaction) to hands-on practice (building phish-resistant UIs, simplifying PKI for ordinary mortals).
There’s a full section on advanced authentication, from challenge questions and graphical passwords to keystroke biometrics. You’ll find extensive guidance on designing systems for privacy and anonymity. Finally, case studies from Zone Labs, IBM, and Microsoft prove that security can be commercialized. Years from now, this book will be viewed as seminal: Right now, it’s indispensable. Bill Camarda, from the November 2005 Read Only
