This lecture will present current challenges in operating systems security – from both a human as well as a technical perspective – and views on possible ways of addressing those issues. The main message will be that the so-called “human factor” is not, in contrast to common belief, the weakest link in IT security, as eliminating the incompetence of users and administrators does not solve many of the serious problems we’re facing today.
