აბსტრაქტი. There is a huge number of different methodologies for evaluating the security of the systems. However, even the most reasonable of them turn out to be incompetent due to the omission of the importance of keeping user convenience in mind. This disadvantage has been resulted in the spread of secure, but useless, from the point of the performance of user tasks, systems. The aim of the article is to process and systemize the existing researches on the development and evaluation of systems, that include the human factor and users’ needs. In addition to this, working recommendations has been considered to help developers and auditors of secured systems.
