Weir, G.R.S. and Zonidis, N. (2005) Desktop security as a three-dimensional problem. KM ITL science and technology journal, 5 (1). pp. 292-302. ISSN 1905-2367

In this paper we argue against viewing computer desktop security solely as a technical issue. Instead, we propose a perspective that combines three related dimensions: technical infrastructure, usability and user engagement. In this light, we suggest that a viable approach to desktop security should embrace these three key dimensions of the end-user context. An example desktop application is described that has been engineered to embody these dimensions in support of the desktop user.
