Many policy authoring tools lack usability, and this deficiency often deters new users from using the tools. In this paper, we propose an approach to make policy authoring more usable and enable novice users to create policies. The process of creating a trust policy using a trust policy language has different levels of complexity for different users. This paper identifies three categories of such users and introduces a three-layered approach to cater to each user group. The approach intuitively reduces the functionalities available based on the capability of each group of users and therefore making policy creation more usable.
