Software and Technology
Alphanumeric passwords tend to be the weakest link to most computer security systems. They are vulnerable to various attacks such as: brute-force, dictionary attacks, social engineering, and spyware. The solution? A graphical password strategy.
In this prototype, users interact with a series of icons in order to login to their account, rather than using a traditional alphanumeric password.
For the initial prototype, the user can choose from 12 icons, where 2 of each are available (24 choices). The password is set to only 4 digits. To increase the amount of combinations, we increase each variable. With 24 icons, 2 of each being available (for a total of 48 choices) and a 6 digit password, the amount of combinations increases exponentially.
This project was prepared solely by Mazen, Exomis CTO, as a personal study on graphical password strategies using Node.js.
