We recently received the good news that our paper on “Exploring Usability Effects of Increasing Security in Click-based Graphical Passwords” was accepted at ACSAC 2010. Elizabeth will be presenting it in Texas in December. A copy of the final ACSAC version of the paper will be posted shortly.
Last week, IEEE’s Privacy, Security, Trust conference (PST) was held here in Ottawa. The talks were an interesting mix ranging from very technical to public policy topics. I taught a half-day tutorial introducing usable security and how to run usability evaluations. We had a paper on using eye-gaze as a tool to predict likely click-based graphical password click-points:
- Guessing Click-Based Graphical Passwords by Eye Tracking (2010). Daniel LeBlanc, Alain Forget, Robert Biddle.
After SOUPS, we went directly to Vancouver for the 2nd annual ISSNet Summer School held at UBC. We had a week of tutorials on different security topics, with lots of opportunity to get to know the other members of ISSNet. Our UBC hosts were great, and organized lots of social events around the technical program.
