Amalgamation , Recall Based Graphical Technique


Use of text-based passwords is common authentication system. It is no secret that users struggle to keep up with their entire (textual) password. Users often create passwords that are vulnerable to attackers guess, but system assigned passwords are hard to memorize. To address this problem, Graphical Passwords are being used as an alternative for Text passwords. In this paper we present a graphical password scheme that offers high memorability & usability. Despite existence of algorithms many have failed to achieve simultaneously both aspects. The Proposed scheme is a combination of Recognition & Recall based Technique, where user is authenticated by identifying the pre-allocated image from the panel of random images, followed by performing certain number of clicks at different locations for setting a password. Some tolerance level is also given for each clicked point of interest. When logging in if the user selects the correct image followed by correct clicks user will be treated as an authenticated user
