Abstract:Security in the computer is largely supported by passwords for authentication process. Use of alphanumeric passwords is the most common Authentication method. This conventional authentication method has been shown to have significant drawbacks. To overcome the vulnerabilities of traditional methods, numerous graphical password authentication systems have been proposed. These graphical passwords are usually seen as complex and time consuming. Furthermore, the existing graphical passwords are susceptible to spyware and shoulder surfing attacks. In this paper we propose this novel graphical password scheme to abolish well known security threats like brute force attacks, dictionary attacks, phishing attacks and spyware attacks..

Keywords: Recall based graphical passwords, computer security, authentication, attack patterns
