This article focuses on designing products against crime. It studies the theoretical links between design against crime and situational prevention, and then identifies the empirical links with risk-factor approaches. From here the discussion demonstrates how the security function of products can be described. Next, it addresses the issues related to the secure design of products, which include adaptive offenders and tradeoffs. The last section of this article examines the question of responsibility for secure design.
