    AUGMENTATION OF SECURITY WITH COMBINATION OF PASS POINTS AND PERSUASIVE CUED CLICK-POINTS PASSWORD

    The authentication system provides the secure environment for the resources. Authentication and identification of the user has always represented the challenging aspects of security systems. The text based user authentication and identification are not sufficient to address these issues. The text based security is considered retrograde and out-dated for current security threats that easily undermine authentication, identification and non-repudiation. A crucial usability goal for authentication systems is to support users in selecting better passwords. Often users create memorable passwords that are easy for attackers to guess, whereas the strong system-assigned passwords are difficult for users to remember. Therefore, modern day researchers suggest using the alternative methods. Here a graphical password system with test password was described. In the proposed work, a click-based graphical password scheme called persuasive cued click points (PCCP) was used along with pass point’s password. In this system, a password consists of sequence of few images wherein a user selects one click-point per specific region of an image and on the last opened image user has to reselect the sequence of clicks for that specific image. Due to integration of passpoints and PCCP password in the graphical authentications the security was enhanced in this system.
