Wilfried Mayer, Katharina Krombholz, Martin Schmiedecker,and Edgar Weippl
HTTPS is the most commonly used cryptographic protocol on the Internet. It protects communication content and provides endpoint authenticity at scale.

To explore why this is the case and how these challenges can be fixed in order to support an even wider adoption, we conducted a user study, which was presented at USENIX Security 2017.
