Three-dimentional secure perspectives (Web 2.0)

New generation interfaces are meant to provide a more usable and natural way to use software applications.

There are several examples such as the one described in http://goanna.cs.rmit.edu.au/~gl/research/HCC/interact97.html.

A very complete three dimensional user interfaces is described in patent US 6636246B1.

     A simpler example is a three dimensional user interfaces with 6 faces (a cube). Each face of the cube can display a different view/desktop/perspective. The user can "rotate" the current view and switch to another view.

     When this feature is integrated with the desktop environment of the operating system , the result is very similar to the two dimensional multi-desktop that is already available.

     The model provided in the above prior arts is focused on navigation and usability.

However this model can be enhanced by integrating the security aspects into the navigation and provide a more natural user experience.

     Multidimensional user interfaces allow applications to show diffent specialized views on different faces of the interface.

The goal of this disclosure is enhance the authorization model of the operating system or the application to better fit the multidimensional environment provided by the new user interfaces.

Having each different view pre-loaded on a different face of the cube, the us...
