Location Aware Security
People use their computer in various different locations/contexts, like at home, the office or in public spaces.
The need for security settings and policies are different for the aforementioned locations. At home, e.g., it might not be needed to ask the user for passwords when connecting thunderbolt devices and also USB devices can probably be trusted more. Additionally the screen locking timeouts can be more relaxed.
- The project would need to first address how different locations can be learned (or explicitly defined) and automatically switched.
- Relevant security policies will then need to be identified and components need to be adjusted to react to different security contexts.
