Security lessons learned building concept apps for webinos. (2013)
Presentation / Conference
FAILY, S. and LYLE, J. 2013. Security lessons learned building concept apps for webinos. Presented at the Human aspects in mobile apps engineering workshop (HAMAE 2013), part of the 27th International BCS human computer interaction conference (HCI 2013): the Internet of Things, 9 September 2013, London, UK.

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 desi... Read More about Security lessons learned building concept apps for webinos..

Security patterns considered harmful? (2013)
Conference Proceeding
FAILY, S. 2013. Security patterns considered harmful? In Proceedings of the 2nd International workshop on cyberpatterns (Cyberpatterns 2013): unifying design patterns with security, attack and forensic patterns, 8-9 July 2013, Abingdon, UK. Oxford: Oxford Brookes University, pages 108-109.

While a useful source of repeatable security knowledge, ambiguity about what security patterns are and how they might be applied call into question their reliability as a design tool. To provoke discussion about their usefulness, this paper claims th... Read More about Security patterns considered harmful?.

CEUR workshop proceedings, 1011. Aachen: CEUR-WS [online]. Available from: http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-1011/

Web browsers are becoming the platform of choice for applications that need to work across a wide range of different devices, including mobile phones, tablets, PCs, TVs and in-car systems. However, for web applications which require a higher level of... Read More about Proceedings of the Workshop on web applications and secure hardware (WASH 2013)..

Guidelines for integrating personas into software engineering tools. (2013)
Conference Proceeding
FAILY, S. and LYLE, J. 2013. Guidelines for integrating personas into software engineering tools. In Proceedings of the 5th ACM SIGCHI symposium on engineering interactive computing systems (EICS 2013), 24-27 June 2013, London, UK. New York: ACM [online], pages 69-74. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1145/2494603.2480318

Personas have attracted the interest of many in the usability and software engineering communities. To date, however, there has been little work illustrating how personas can be integrated into software tools to support these engineering activities....

Formal evaluation of persona trustworthiness with EUSTACE. (2013)
Presentation / Conference
FAILY, S., POWER, D., ARMSTRONG, P. and FLÉCHAIS, I. 2013. Formal evaluation of persona trustworthiness with EUSTACE. Presented at the 6th International conference on trust and trustworthy computing (TRUST 2013), 17-19 June 2013, London, UK.

Personas are useful for considering how users of a system might behave, but problematic when accounting for hidden behaviours not obvious from their descriptions alone. Formal methods can potentially identify such subtleties in interactive systems, b... Read More about Formal evaluation of persona trustworthiness with EUSTACE..
