ABSTRACT:
Today’s world is all about providing security to the data, information, privacy and presence of an individual. And, in the mobile and internet environment, authentication plays a pivot role. Even though we have many kinds of password protection levels still users face issues like cracking of the passwords and shoulder surfing. We have many algorithms which are used to overcome these issues, but rate of theft has been predominantly increasing. Classical approach of resolving the issue is generating one time passwords which safeguards from many attacks like shoulder surfing and replay attacks. We have many algorithms designed for generating an OTP. For example, mathematical algorithms use old OTP’s to generate a new one, so this creates a security issue again. The important feature is to improve the security without negotiating the user’s convenience. Our proposed system deals with a dynamic scheme of 3-factor authentication based on classical password, Pass Pattern and OTP. This method can be used in many day-to-day applications.
