Welcome to GASSP


Graphical password schemes have been proposed as an alternative to text-based password authentication. The goal of this project was two-tiered: First we implemented two graphical password schemes based on the principles of recall and cued-recall. Second, these schemes were compared to each other and a text-based password scheme to evaluate usability in terms of password initialization, login and password recovery; and robustness to guessing and capture attacks. All testing and implementation was done on a prototype social networking platform Hackmi2.
