3D Password Security

A 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.The textual passwords, nowadays, 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.
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.
