In this paper we argue against viewing computer desktop security solely as a technical issue. Instead, we propose a perspective that combines three related dimensions: technical infrastructure, usability and user engagement. In this light, we suggest that a viable approach to desktop security should embrace these three key dimensions of the end-user context. An example desktop application is described that has been engineered to embody these dimensions in support of the desktop user.
