Abstract

Text-based passwords are ubiquitous authentication system. This traditional authentication system is well-known for it flaws in the aspects of usability and security issues that bring problems to users. Hence, there is a need for alternative mechanism to overcome these problems. Graphical passwords, which consist of clicking or dragging activities on the pictures rather than typing textual characters, might be the option to overcome the problems that arise from the text-based passwords system. In this paper, a comprehensive study of the existing graphical password schemes is performed. We compared and categorized these schemes into two groups; recognition-based scheme and recall-based scheme. We also list out several usability and security features for research continuity in this area.
