The goal of the MODUS project is the creation of a communication system allowing visitors the ability to leave messages for or book appointments with staff members. This implementation exists in a ubiquitous environment that creates problematic conditions for both usability and security aspects of computing. The MODUS project aims to ensure that the system is as secure against attack as possible. This involved developing security features according to fundamental security principles: Authentication & Authorization, Integrity and Confidentiality. During the course of development, issues relating to usability and security in a ubiquitous computing environment were identified and explored. Throughout the design and implementation phases of the project, solutions to the usability and security issues were identified, tested, and implemented. Ultimately, the outcome of the MODUS project is a fully-functional system that achieves the goals set out at the beginning of the project.
