1st TIPPI Workshop

Trustworthy Interfaces for Passwords and Personal Information

Speaker: Burt Kaliski

Title: Discussion: Next Steps toward More Trustworthy Interfaces

The TIPPI workshop highlights promising lines of research in security protocols, user interfaces, and the connections between them that collectively offer significant potential for improving users' confidence in their interactions on the Internet. The impact of the workshop in fulfilling this potential depends to a large extent on the interests of the participants in bringing together the concepts into sustained practice. As a motivation, I'll attempt to draw together a framework for further research and industry efforts, including a proposal for a set of criteria - a "standard" of sorts - by which a user interface for passwords and personal information may be considered "trustworthy." We'll conclude with an open discussion about next steps.

Dr. Burt Kaliski is vice president of research at RSA Security and chief scientist of its research center, RSA Laboratories. Burt joined RSA Security in 1989 when it was a startup, and in 1991 helped launch RSA Laboratories. Since then he has led a team of applied researchers and standards developers who have produced a range of new concepts and technologies with longstanding impact on the industry.
