Title: Applying the Wisdom of Crowds to Usable Privacy and Security
Speaker: Jason Hong, Associate Professor, HCII
Date: Oct 19th, @ Noon
Location: GHC 4405
In this talk, I present an overview of work my colleagues and
I have been doing in applying crowdsourcing techniques for
privacy and security. I will talk about three different projects.
The first looks at how to improve the accuracy and response times
of people in identifying fake phishing web pages. The second
looks at analyzing location data from hundreds of people and
using that to infer friendships on Facebook as well as privacy
preferences. The third, which is ongoing and will be more
speculative, looks at how to use crowdsourcing techniques to
understand people's privacy expectations, and how to use that
to improve privacy in the context of smartphone apps.
