DIM 2007
	   3rd ACM Workshop on Digital Identity Management.
		     Held in conjunction with the
14th ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security (CCS 2007),
			  Fairfax, VA, USA,
			   November 2, 2007
		    (Submissions due 15 June 2007)

This year's theme is "Usability Issues for Identity Management." As the Web
2.0 trend exemplifies, user experiences on the Net are becoming more and
more interactive, dynamic, and personalized. With appropriate control over
the number and use of their identity(s), users can enjoy the advantages of
highly sophisticated personal services without the management burden they
currently face or sacrificing their privacy. However, standing in the way of
this attractive goal are malicious identity-motivated attacks (such as
phishing & pharming), inadequate user understanding of the underlying trust
models (including the consequences of poorly set security and privacy
preferences), and the complexity of managing how identities are to be used,
shared, and delegated. To address such issues, many technological solutions
have been already proposed, both in the industry and academia, to date with
mixed success.

To ensure that the emerging identity management technologies are accepted by
end-users, we must reconcile (or strike the right balance between) two goals
that are generally thought to be contradictory: the usability of the systems
on one hand and their security and privacy on the other. The aim of this
workshop is to gather vendors, users, and researchers, in the areas of
identity management, to discuss and provide recommendations for the best
approaches for making implementable and deployable improvements to the
usability of identity management. Topics of particular interest include (but
are not limited to):
- User interaction design for identity management
- Social identity
- User centric identity
- Expressing trustworthiness of identity management to users
- Empirical analysis of usability problems with identity management systems
- Evaluation methodologies for usability of identity management systems
- Novel user interface technologies for identity management
- Privacy enhanced user interaction
- User education on identity management
- Elicitation of privacy preferences from end users
- Identity theft prevention
- User-readable privacy policies
- Methodologies and interfaces for managing multiple identities including
- Identity theft prevention
- Privacy-enhancing identity management
- Consistent UI for identity transactions
