Description: This project investigates how mental models of computer security are formed, how ideas and information about computer security are incorporated into mental models, and how they are transmitted from person to person. It measures the prevalence of different mental models and correlates them with logs of actual security behaviors. Through these investigations, this project seeks to characterize the reasons that many everyday computer users choose not to act securely — a question which is one of the biggest challenges of computer security.
