Due to the increasing value of information being stored in computers, it is important that unforgeable user authentication policies are implemented. Existing password authentication schemes, threats and counter-measures are described. A solution to eavesdropping problems using public-key cryptography is proposed. A technique to allow long password-phrases that makes an exhaustive search impracticable is presented.
