User authentication is a key issue in the security of information systems. Graphical methods for user authentication are gaining importance in view of their distinct advantages over the traditional alphanumeric passwords. A number of Recognition based authentication systems have been proposed in the recent past. They are attractive since humans normally remember pictures better than words. In this paper, we propose a novel recognition-based image authentication system called “Select-to-Spawn” which is secure, robust and convenient to use. The scheme can be easily implemented on computers, hand held devices, mobile phones and ATMs.
