Good security requires basic usability. This universal truth can be demonstrated with a handful of examples, ranging from the UX of key handling, mental models of password managers, and visual styling against phishing.

Expect a love-hate letter to open source, and a basic introduction to human-centered design methods to incorporate in your development process.
