Evaluating Usability and Security with Users of All Ages


Although studying the users of security technologies already presents unique challenges for HCI, testing these technologies with users of all ages (including children and the elderly) introduces many other issues that must be addressed.

Based on our experiences in testing with users of all ages, we suggest some strategies for dealing with these kinds ofissues.
