The impact of social navigation on privacy policy configuration
Social navigation is a promising approach to help users make better privacy and security decisions using community knowledge and expertise. Social navigation has recently been applied to several privacy and security systems such as peer-topeer file sharing, cookie management, and firewalls. However, little empirical evaluation of social navigation cues has been performed in security or privacy systems to understand the real impact such knowledge has on user behavior and the resulting policies. In this paper, we explore the application of social navigation to access control policy configuration using an empirical between subjects study. Our results indicate that community information does impact user behavior, but only when the visual representation of the cue is sufficiently strong.
