The purpose of this paper is to propose a preliminary framework for supporting usable security on the World Wide Web through adaptivity in user interface designs. In particular we elaborate the concept of "Adaptive Usable Security" and suggest that it is a promising research area aiming to organize and present information and functionalities in an adaptive format to diverse user groups, by using different levels of abstractions through appropriate interaction styles, terminology, information presentation and user modeling techniques related to security and/or privacy preserving tasks. Furthermore, we present components of a preliminary framework aiming to provide guidance in developing "adaptive usable secure" interactive systems. The results and implications of this paper can be considered valuable in elaborating a common architecture for future deployment of adaptive usable security systems on a variety of application areas and services through the World Wide Web. © 2014 Springer International Publishing.
