We present TrustNeighborhoods, a security trust visualization for situational awareness on the Internet aimed at novice and intermediate users of a distributed file sharing system. The TrustNeighborhoods technique uses the metaphor of a multi-layered city or fortress to intuitively represent trust as a simple geographic relation. The visualization uses a radial space-filling layout; there is a 2D mode for editing and configuration, as well as a 3D mode for exploration and overview. In addition, the 3D mode supports a simple animated “fly-to” command that is intended to show the user the context and trust of a particular document by zooming in on the document and its immediate neighborhood in the 3D city. The visualization is intended for integration into an existing desktop environment, connecting to the distributed file sharing mechanisms of the environment and non-obtrusively displaying a 3D orientation animation in the background for any file being accessed over the network. A formal user study shows that the technique supports significantly higher trust assignment accuracy than manual trust assignment at the cost of only a minor time investment.
