Abstract

Concept applications provide a means for tackling security infrastructure problems. Not only do they provide feedback to infrastructure design, they can also inform subsequent research activities. However, to directly influence the architectural design of infrastructure, designers need to engage in the engineering of apps, rather than just their broad design. By doing so, additional problems can be identified that might otherwise be missed using human-centered design alone. In this paper, we describe four security lessons learned from engineering the Kids in Focus concept app for the EU FP 7 webinos project. These illustrate how detailed design activities can highlight broader infrastructure problems that might otherwise have gone unnoticed.
