How Can Visualization Affect Security?

Joana Muchagata, Ana Ferreira

Abstract

Technology like computers and especially mobile devices have changed the way people see and interact with the world. Many of our everyday tasks are only completed using technology supported by different platforms (desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones) so the visualization of content is presented differently depending on the used device and type of information requested. However, even with user-adaptive systems, which can adjust interface content according to individual’s needs and context, data privacy can be at risk, as these techniques do not aim to protect them or even identify the presence of vulnerabilities. The main goal of this paper is to analyse what techniques are available to adapt visualization to users’ needs and context of each interaction with different devices and analyse which can be applied to improve security and privacy of visualized data. Two use-cases are presented to compare traditional access and access using visualization techniques to improve security and mitigate privacy vulnerabilities of healthcare data. More research is needed to define and validate security visualization techniques integrated into human mobile interactions, to better provide for the security and privacy of sensitive data.
