Abstract or Summary:
A Password-based authentication is a basic technique used for user authentication. However, phishing, shoulder surfing, or keyloggers pose a threat to security. We proposed a new password inputting method at SOUPS'13. In this method, the user uses only the four arrow keys and the Enter key to input passwords and this method helps secure the password against keyloggers and shoulder surfing. However, a wrong password can be easily input by this method. And the number of times a key is pressed increases. In this paper, we propose a new improved method to input a password. In this method, only four keys and Enter key are used, errors when inputting the password are few, and when a certain letter is input, a key is pressed thrice.
