Authentication is most important topic in information security. Currently web applications are using text based password for authentication, but text based passwords are suffered to security and usability issues. Text passwords are vulnerable to spyware, brute force and dictionary attacks. Graphical based password is proposed to overcome vulnerabilities of text based passwords. Graphical based password authentication technique use images as a password. Psychological studies says that human mind…

AcSIS: Authentication System Based on Image Splicing

The evaluation of the usability revealed that graphical passwords were easy-to-remember, resulting in a higher number of correct attempts, and the proposed method produced 50% higher success rate compared to the text-based method.

Preventing Shoulder-Surfing Attacks using Digraph Substitution Rules and Pass-Image Output Feedback

This paper improvised the digraph substitution rules from PlayFair cipher and used these rules together with an output feedback method to determine a pass-image and showed the proposed method was robust against both direct observation and video-recorded shoulder-surfing attacks.



A Secure Recognition Based Graphical Password by Watermarking

A new algorithm is proposed that using watermarking technique as the solution to solving image gallery attacks and using the random character set generation for each image for resistance to shoulder surfing attack to provide better system security.

Graphical Password Authentication Schemes: Current Status and Key Issues

A comprehensive survey of the existing graphical authentication systems is conducted and these methods are classified in to three main areas: Recognition based schemes, pure recall based schemes and cued recallbased schemes.

Network security-overcome password hacking through graphical password authentication

A comprehensive survey of the existing graphical password techniques and a new technique is proposed, which discusses the strengths and limitations of each method and point out the future research directions in this area.

Graphical Password Authentication: Cloud Securing Scheme

This paper is proposing cloud with graphical security by means of image password, providing one of the algorithms which is based on selection of username and images as a password based on alphabet series position of characters in username.

Intrusion prevention by image based authentication techniques

Two authentication techniques-Pair based, and Text based Image Authentication are proposed in this paper which are resistant to shoulder surfing.

A graphical password against spyware and shoulder-surfing attacks

A new scheme for graphical password that uses images that are unexplainable and have larger password space is presented, which is also resistant to spyware and shoulder-surfing attacks.
