"Last year, we asked 90 developers to generate/validate certificates using the command line OpenSSL. Why didn't they succeed? What do people think of the interface? What's wrong with the manual page and what do online tutorials lack? And what can be changed to improve the situation?

In our research, we focused on API of OpenSSL, a widely-known cryptographic library. We'll present multiple insights from the DevConf 2017 research booth, answering the questions from the previous paragraph.

We use OpenSSL as a real-world example to spark conversation on usable security. How to make products that are not only computationally secure but also usably secure for the end-users (be it your system administrator or your granny)?"
