Abstract

Shoulder surfing is an attack which has to be exterminated for the betterment of the society. Identity theft and digital piracy are also the branches of shoulder surfing and keylogging. Authentication is the remedy for these attacks as identifying the correct person before giving access to a system is a crucial part. Traditional password systems are vulnerable to visionary attacks like a person standing behind and watching over the user’s shoulder and cameras can record the finger movements on the keyboard. To avoid these attacks, the method of graphical password was introduced. This research introduces a graphical method with password, colour and OTP as three factors of authentication. This scheme helps user to authenticate without exposing the password to other entities. The analysis of this scheme is performed and also the user survey has been displayed.
