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.
