Abstract—A specification is provided in this paper to assist in the design of usable and secure web-services. In particular, this specification helps design an adequate security information feedback based on User Interface Patterns, the resulting visual feedback is then evaluated against a set of design/evaluation criteria called Human- Computer Interaction for Security (HCI-S). In addition we propose in a theoretical manner including the knowledge offered by the proposed specification based on patterns in a new level for the architectural structure of WS-Security specification, which is currently one of the most popular specifications to establish secure web services.

Index Terms—User feedback, HCI-S, WS-Security, usability, secure web services, design patterns.
