Overview#CyLab Usable Privacy and Security Laboratory (CUPS) brings together researchers working on a diverse set of projects related to understanding and improving the usability of privacy and security software and systems. Our research employs a combination of three high-level strategies to make secure systems more usable:
- building systems that "just work" without involving humans in security-critical functions;
- making secure systems intuitive and easy to use;
- teaching humans how to perform security-critical tasks.
