A Novel User Authentication Scheme Based on QR-Code

  title={A Novel User Authentication Scheme Based on QR-Code},
  author={Kuan-Chieh Liao and Wei-Hsun Lee},
  journal={J. Networks},
User authentication is one of the fundamental procedures to ensure secure communications and share system resources over an insecure public network channel. Thus, a simple and efficient authentication mechanism is required for securing the network system in the real environment. In general, the password-based authentication mechanism provides the basic capability to prevent unauthorized access. Especially, the purpose of the one-time password is to make it more difficult to gain unauthorized… Expand
