Attacks and Remedies of Authentication Techniques : A Review

Authors(2) :-Hiral Patil, Chandresh D Parekh

Most people now access all the important areas of their life banking, shopping, insurance, medical records, and so on-normally by typing a username and password into a website. A password based mechanism is the mostly used method of authentication in distributed environments. Text based passwords are not so secure enough for real-time applications. Authentication plays a major role in protecting resources against unauthorized users. But now-a-days many user authentication systems suffer from limitations and security threats. Graphical passwords use images as passwords. Human brain is good in remembering picture than text. There are various graphical password techniques or graphical password software in the market The main goal of this work is to reduce the guessing attacks as well as encouraging users to select more random, and difficult passwords to guess.
