Project Description :

PASSWORD is a word or string of characters used for user authentication to prove identity or access approval to gain access to a resource, which should be kept secret from those not allowed to access it. Users nowadays are provided with major password stereotypes such as textual passwords, biometric scanning, tokens or cards (such as an ATM) etc .

Mostly Textual passwords are used everywhere. Nowadays, they are kept very simple. Users tend to choose meaningful words from dictionaries, their pet names, girlfriends or a word in reverse order etc…. On the other hand, if a password is hard to guess, then it is often hard to remember

Otherwise the Biometric scanning is used. But many people hate the fact to carry around their cards, some refuse to undergo strong IR exposure to their retinas(Biometric scanning), which is always vulnerable .

Current authentication systems suffer from many weaknesses. Textual passwords are also not meeting their requirements, as we saw early. So, it makes the textual passwords easy to break  and vulnerable to dictionary or brute force attacks.

Therefore we present our idea, the 3D passwords which are more customizable and very interesting way of authentication. If it is once implemented in a secure site and you log into that particular site, the 3D password GUI opens up. This is an additional textual password which the user can simply put. Once he goes through the first authentication, a 3D virtual room will open on the screen.

The 3D password is a multi factor authentication scheme.The 3D password presents a 3D virtual environment containing various virtual objects. The user navigates through this environment and interacts with the objects. It is simply the combination and the sequence of user interactions that occur in the 3D virtual environment.

Here, Major attcks can also be Counter attacked. Designing a simple and easy one to use 3D virtual environment is a factor that leads to a higher user acceptability of a 3D password system. The choice of what authentication scheme will be part of user's 3D password reflects the user's preferences and requirements.
