Exploring Reactive Access Control
As users store and share more digital content at home, access control becomes increasingly important. One promising approach for helping non-expert users create accurate access policies is reactive policy creation, in which users can update their policy dynamically in response to access requests that would not otherwise succeed. An earlier paper suggested reactive policy creation might be a good fit for file access control at home. To test this, the authors conducted an experience-sampling study in which participants used a simulated reactive access-control system for a week.
