PassBYOP-Bring Your Own Picture for Securing Graphical Passwords

PassBYOP is a new graphical password scheme for public terminals that replaces the static digital images typically used in graphical password systems with personalized physical tokens, herein in the form of digital pictures displayed on a physical user-owned device such as a mobile phone. Users present these images to a system camera and then enter their password as a sequence of selections on live video of the token. Highly distinctive optical features are extracted from these selections and used as the password. We present three feasibility studies of PassBYOP examining its reliability, usability, and security against observation. The reliability study shows that image-feature based passwords are viable and suggests appropriate system thresholds—password items should contain a minimum of seven features, 40% of which must geometrically match originals stored on an authentication server in order to be judged equivalent. The usability study measures task

completion times and error rates, revealing these to be 7.5 s and 9%, broadly comparable with prior graphical password systems that use static digital images. Finally, the security study highlights PassBYOP’s resistance to observation attack—three attackers are unable to compromise a password using shoulder surfing, camera based observation, or malware. These results indicate that Pass- BYOP shows promise for security while maintaining the usability of current graphical password schemes.

Existing System

TEXTUAL passwords have been the most widely used authentication method for decades. Comprised of number sand upper- and lower-case letters, textual passwords are considered strong enough to resist against brute force attacks. However, a strong textual password is hard to memorize and recollect. Therefore, users tend to choose passwords that are either short or from the dictionary, rather than random alphanumeric strings.
