General Issues  

Robert Bagwill

A brief discussion of the general security issues related to the human-computer interface follows. The two main security responsibilities of the system are:

Identifying users is discussed below. Authenticating users, programs, and systems is discussed in Chapter 10. Restricting user, program, and other systems' activities is discussed in Chapters 4 and 10. And given that the human/computer interface has a physical component, some of the issues of hardware security are discussed.
