Passwords remain the dominant mechanism for web authentication despite their well-known weaknesses. Economics makes them very difficult to replace, but they can be strengthened by analyzing a number of implicit secondary factors. These implicit factors can help transform authentication from a binary decision problem (based on passwords alone) into a classification problem with a spectrum of possible decisions.
We highlight three distinct privacy issues in the next three sections.
