CASA Distinguished Lectures

 

In den CASA Distinguished Lectures heißen wir ausgewählte international und nationale Wissenschaftler*innen am HGI willkommen.
An die meist einstündigen Vorträge dieser exzellenten Gastredner*innen schließt immer auch eine Diskussion mit den Teilnehmenden an. Damit möchten wir unser Ziel verwirklichen, einen regen Gedankenaustausch innerhalb der Cyber-Security-Forschung anzutreiben und neue Perspektiven zu öffnen.

Aufgrund der aktuellen Situation rund um die COVID-19-Epidemie werden die Lectures online abgehalten - und sind damit für Interessierte auf der ganzen Welt zugänglich. Der Zugangslink zur jeweiligen Veranstaltung wird unter den Informationen zu den Votragenden geteilt.

"A User-Centric Approach to Securing the HTTPS Ecosystem"

Copyright: CISPA

Abstract. HTTPS is one of the most important protocols used to secure communication and is, fortunately, becoming more pervasive. However, especially the long tail of websites is still not sufficiently secured. HTTPS involves different types of users, e.g., end users who are faced with trust indicators and warnings or administrators who are required to deal with cryptographic fundamentals and complex decisions concerning compatibility.

In this talk, I present recent users-centric research that explains why different types of users still struggle with making informed security decisions. Based on empirical studies with administrators and end users, I discuss multidimensional reasons for vulnerabilities in the HTTPS ecosystem and how a more human-centric approach to the design of cryptographic protocols could mitigate them.
