I've been thinking. If someone asks about security (not implementation), is that considered a UX question? Because good security could potentially be good UX.

Security falls under UX if you're asking about the UX of security rather than implementation. There is even a security tag, which should indicate that security questions are allowed.

Take a look at some of those to get an idea of what is considered UX.

    Yes. If the focus of the question is the User Experience then this is the right site. But if the focus of the question is the security decisions then security.stackexchange.com is a better home. In almost all situations there is one, and only one suitable Stackexchange home for a question, so pick the site that is the best fit.

  • for example, there is a healthy set of questions here about the usability of passwords (also has it's own tag) - a very security oriented topic, though one with an important UX slant as they involve people too, good answers to these questions do often mention security
