Legacy Authentication Methods Preventing Key logging Attacks

M.Vamsi Krishna, K. Nagababu


The objective is not protected the authentication process against the shoulder surfing attacker who be able to see or cooperation at the same time both devices over the shoulder, but quite to make it hard forthe opponent to open the attack. We show how visualization can improve not only safety but also usability by proposing two visual authentication protocols: one for password-based authentication, and the other for one-time-password. During thorough study, we show that our protocols are impervious to many of the challenging attacks appropriate to other protocols in the literature. Additionally, using an wide-ranging case study on a prototype of our protocols, we underline the potential of our protocols in real-world consumption addressing users shortcomings and limitations.
