Wired News has an excerpt from Bruce Schneier’s essay on The Psychology of Security… In a previous post on the Emotional Side of Security, I mentioned how security experts like Bruce Schneier were beginning to realize that the emotional, psychological side of security plays as big a part in creating a secure system as the technology itself.
Schneier’s full essay, entitled The Psychology of Security is available here. The essay represents Schneier’s initial attempts to explore the feeling of security. If he hasn’t already, perhaps he should be talking with some of the experts in the field of design and emotion, like Pieter Desmet.
