*Security and Privacy Aspects of Human-Computer-Interactions*


With increasing digitization, the security and privacy aspects of
information are a nonnegotiable factor in information system design and
operation. Especially the human factor of information systems is a pivotal
role in information security and increasingly relevant in establishing
user-privacy concepts. More often than not, their knowledge about security
aspects and ways of user-manipulation tactics are the last line of defense
against cyberattacks. However, studies show users are also seen as the
weakest link in information security. Therefore, they are also the primary
target of attackers.

In addition to the traditional forms of user-computer-interactions in the
form of mouse-keyboard-input-devices, new ways of system-interactions,
e.g., physiological data from fitness-trackers, eye-tracking devices or
even pupillary responses indicating cognitive-load-levels, are increasingly
feasible as everyday HCI-components. With the interest in data privacy
increasing, are users aware how valuable those personal input data is and
how do they value data privacy measures?

We have identified two main aspects relevant to researchers within the
domain of Software Technology:

1) how to securely deal with input data (also focusing on privacy aspects)

2) how this data can be utilized in order to increase secure behavior or to
raise awareness among users (help the users to make better security-related

In this minitrack we seek papers that explore concepts, prototypes, and
evaluations of how users interact with information systems and what
implications these interactions have for information security and data
privacy. Further, we welcome new and innovative ways of
human-computer-interaction and security-related concepts currently examined
in the field.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

• Security related devices

• Physiological sensors

• Human-Computer-Interaction

• Artificial intelligence

• Sensor analysis

• Data visualization

• Biometrics authentication

• Security and privacy awareness

• Usable security design

• Privacy and security by design

• User valuation of privacy

• Validation of user data
