Persuasive Cued Click Point (PCCP), Improved Advanced Encryption Standard (IAES), Knowledge Based Authentication


Computer and network security is most highlighted part of security wherein the attacker just needs to find the weakness of the security. The implementation thus provides the mechanism of combination of two unique techniques PCCP technique and IAES algorithm .The combination of this techniques provide strength to the security thus enabling the user for a secured access also thus proportionally the task of attacking is reduced by increasing the possible combination of attacks. The authentication mechanism mainly focuses on that point of security which are more prone to be attacked by any means of threat which are vulnerable for the user`s information, these mostly are sensitive information and the reliable service sector. An important usability goal for knowledge-based authentication systems is to support users in selecting passwords of higher security. Text-based passwords alone are subject to dictionary attacks as users mostly use passwords which are easy to memorize. Two way authentication techniques protect the data by using both the text and graphical passwords. We suggest a hybrid user authentication approach combining text passwords, recognition-based graphical passwords, a two-step process, for increasing security, to encourage users for selecting more random, and eventually more difficult for guessing, click-points.
