4D Password Authentication Scheme

Authors(1) :-Gurwinder Singh

There are so many authentication schemes used presently, but they all have some drawbacks. It is very easy for anyone to filch or hack our passwords. So lately, the 3D password paradigm has been introduced. The 3D passwords which are more customizable and very interesting way of authentication. A 3D password is a multifactor authentication scheme that combines Recognisation + Recall +Tokens +Biometrics in one authentication system. This research paper presents a study of the 3D password and an approach to strengthen it by way of adding a Fourth dimension (also called 4D), that deals with gesture recognition and time recording, and that would help strengthen the authentication scheme altogether. Hence we attempt to propose a 4D password as a parent class of 3D password.
