Cognitive Graphical Password based on Recognition with Improved User Functionality


Mozhdeh Sarkhoshi and Qianmu Li, Nanjing University of Science and Technology, China


The fact that photos and graphics are more easily recalled by humans than text led to the proposal that visual passwords may be a viable alternative to text passwords in certain situations. User-friendliness characteristics of existing models are based on graphical password recognition, and the introduction of a new model that is related to the specifications and features of ISO standard usability and to the specifications and features of general usability specifications and features is being considered. Once these criteria and characteristics and subcomponents of usability had been compared, additional usability features that could be included into the new graphical password model provided were discovered. There was a presentation of the graphical password model, which was separated into two sections, which included new users and current users. A questionnaire was used to evaluate the usability features and applicability of the prototype system after it had been implemented as a prototype system. After this step, the system was implemented as a prototype system and its evaluation and evaluation through a questionnaire was used to evaluate the usability features and applicability of the prototype system. Then there will be user input on the whole system, as well as the outcomes. The characteristics and specifications of the usability of the visual password prototype will be gathered and examined in this study. All of the percentages collected in this publication in connection to the findings and results from the point of view of usability are such that it is possible to conclude that the new visual password system is acceptable in its current form.
