ESAPI Users, lets help out a PhD candidate and earn a $15 Amazon gift card


This was posted to the ESAPI-User mailing list. Let's see if we can help Chamila out here.
=========

Hi all,

I'm a PhD research student from University of New South Wales working on the usability of security APIs. In my research, I am planning to develop a systematic approach to evaluate the usability of security APIs. So far I have proposed a methodology to evaluate the usability of security APIs and currently working on using this methodology to evaluate the usability of some security APIs.

I have selected ESAPI Encoder Java API as one of the APIs I am evaluating in my study. At the end of this study, I am planning to submit a report about the potential usability issues that I identified in ESAPI Encoder Java API to the community. I believe my study will help to improve the usability of ESAPI Encoder API.

For the study, I require participants who are using the API for the first time, as well as participants who have already used that. I have already progressed with the part that involves participants with no prior experience with ESAPI. But I am currently having difficulties with finding programmers with prior experience with ESAPI to participate in this study. Therefore, I thought to drop a mail here where many ESAPI users will be available. Please apologize me if this email is not appropriate to this list.

This study will involve writing a code while following a think aloud protocol and then completing a survey. We expect that this study will take about 1-2 hours to complete. It can be done on your own computer. As a token of our appreciation, we will give you a $15 Amazon gift certificate. Attached flyer contains more details about the study.

If you are willing and available, please Sign up at:
https://goo.gl/forms/wA9jmC

We will absolutely work around your schedule, and you can do the study remotely.

It will be a great help for my study if you can participate and I believe it will help the ESAPI as well.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

More details in the image, below.
Thank you.

How cool is this? Draw math equations and have it produce LaTeX?

This shows why crypto backdoors will backfire.

Sigh. Apparently, Texas hasn't learned anything from it's last incident with 14 year old Muslim teen Ahmed Mohamed (even if that did turn out to be a hoax). Attorneys there were asking for $15M, so I'm betting this one will be at least 3 times that. Way to go Texas!

Follow me on Twitter

I've decided that I need practice in brevity since I'm mostly known for my TL;DR posts on mailing lists.

So come follow me on Twitter @KevinWWall and give me some pointers and tell me how I'm doing, but at least you won't have to listen to me ramble for more than 144 characters. But just don't follow me on the streets...because that would be stalking.
