In this paper, we present a case study of designing and improving an interface for a web based security analysis software for the internet of things (IoT), called the IoTCube. The objective of the IoTCube is to provide an easy-to-use security vulnerability checking and analysis solution for the IoT related developers and users. The software is consisted and organized of largely three analysis functionalities for the: (1) system/executables, (2) source code and (3) network protocols. The interface design started with the user analysis and deriving of requirements based on usage scenarios, and then went through several iterations of sketches, wire-frames and implementations based on feedbacks from the HCI experts, domain experts and actual users to further improve its usability. The improved usability not only has made the security analysis practice much accessible for the non-experts, but also brought about a concrete understanding of the consequences of identified problems.
