Static honeypots are unable to represent the dynamic nature of today's networks where different numbers of hardware devices and hosts running various operating systems are online at a particular time and frequently join and leave a network. A single static(More)
Graphical password authentication was developed based on the premise that humans are better at recognizing visual data than text-based information.
