van der Linden, Dirk, Rashid, Awais, Williams, Emma, Warinschi, Bogdan.  2018.  Safe Cryptography for All: Towards Visual Metaphor Driven Cryptography Building Blocks. Proceedings of the 1st International Workshop on Security Awareness from Design to Deployment. :41-44.

In this vision paper, we focus on a key aspect of the modern software developer's potential to write secure software: their (lack of) success in securely using cryptography APIs. In particular, we note that most ongoing research tends to focus on identifying concrete problems software developers experience, and providing workable solutions, but that such solutions still require developers to identify the appropriate API calls to make and, worse, to be familiar with and configure sometimes obscure parameters of such calls. In contrast, we envision identifying and employing targeted visual metaphors to allow developers to simply select the most appropriate cryptographic functionality they need.
