DIMACS Workshop on Usable Privacy and Security Software 2004, July 7-9, 2004, Rutgers University, Piscataway, New Jersey, USA
This extended abstract proposes combining the safe staging technique of Whitten and Tygar with the design philosophy of the AT&T Privacy Bird as a step towards a general purpose mechanism for guiding users safely and confidently through the hazards of cyberspace. It briefly introduces an end-user risk management approach that generalizes the Privacy Bird technique. Preliminary experience with a prototype of these ideas applied in a Web browsing context has been encouraging and is discussed.
