Toward a secure and usable cloud-based password manager for web browsers

Rui Zhao, Chuan Yue
2014 Computers & security  
Fortunately, all the five most popular Web browsers have provided password managers as a useful built-in feature.  ...  Moreover, we propose a novel Cloud-based Storage-Free BPM (CSF-BPM) design to achieve a high level of security with the desired confidentiality, integrity, and availability properties.  ...  Acknowledgement The authors sincerely thank anonymous reviewers for their valuable suggestions and comments. This research was supported in part by the U.S.  ...

Comparing Password Management Software: Toward Usable and Secure Enterprise Authentication

Patricia Arias-Cabarcos, Andres Marin, Diego Palacios, Florina Almenarez, Daniel Diaz-Sanchez
2016 IT Professional Magazine  
In this regard, though deploying a strong enterprise password policy is a mean to increase security against online breaches and data leaks, it also imposes a significant usability burden for users.  ...  To alleviate this problem, Password Managers (PMs) are pointed out as user-friendly tools that automate the processes of password generation and login. But how secure and usable are these tools?  ...  The goal of this paper is therefore to perform a comparative analysis, based on expert knowledge and empirical studies with users, and also to derive new directions towards secure and usable authentication  ...

Password Managers—It's All about Trust and Transparency

Fahad Alodhyani, George Theodorakopoulos, Philipp Reinecke
2020 Future Internet  
Our findings show that usability is not a major problem, rather lack of trust and transparency are the main reasons for the low adoption of password managers.  ...  Users of password managers have trust and security concerns, while there are a few issues with the user interfaces and functions of password managers.  ...  Acknowledgments: The authors would like to thank the 30 participants who took part in the usability test and interview study, as well as the 247 anonymous participants who completed the online questionnaire  ...

User Study on Single Password Authentication [article]

Devris Isler, Alptekin Küpçü, Aykut Coskun
2018 IACR Cryptology ePrint Archive  
In this paper, we implement two very different SPA systems and assess their usability with the following two comparative experiments: one comparing the state-of-the-art cloud-based browser-extension SPA  ...  Unlike classical password-based authentication systems, in SPA schemes the user is required to remember only a single password (and a username) for all her accounts, while the password is protected against  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Arjen Kılıç and İlker Kadir Öztürk for their efforts on implementation.  ...

BluePass: A Mobile Device Assisted Password Manager

Yue Li, Haining Wang, Kun Sun
2019 EAI Endorsed Transactions on Security and Safety  
However, state-ofthe-art cloud based password managers are vulnerable to data breach and a master password becomes a single point of failure.  ...  BluePass partially inherits the security characteristics of two-factor authentication by requiring both a mobile device and a master password to retrieve and decrypt the site passwords.  ...  However, a password manager has its own security and usability problem.  ...

A keyboard that manages your passwords in Android

Faysal Boukayoua, Bart De Decker, Vincent Naessens
2014 2014 International Conference on Privacy and Security in Mobile Systems (PRISMS)  
Unfortunately, when it comes to password management, users are confronted with greater security and usability concerns than in the non-mobile world.  ...  This work presents a password manager for Android that can accommodate any app. Existing platform mechanisms are leveraged to better protect against malware and device theft, than current solutions.  ...  Unlike browser-based solutions, our approach is not limited to the passwords of a single application. Ultimately, the barrier is lowered towards working with stronger, more differentiated passwords.  ...

Signing Cloud: Towards Qualified Electronic Signature Service in Cloud

Wojciech Kinastowski
2013 2013 IEEE 5th International Conference on Cloud Computing Technology and Science  
This paper covers the challenges in implementing a cloud-based digital signature service and, as a result, outlines cloud (Signing Cloud) that performs digital signature.  ...  New designs are desperately needed for qualified electronic signature to flourish. Cloud computing provides a new and promising opportunity for delivering electronic signatures as a service.  ...  To address this problem W3C Web Cryptography Working Group is working on Web Cryptography API. It should allow standardized, in-browser clients' encryption when communicating with a cloud.  ...

Shikun Zhang, Sarah Pearman, Lujo Bauer, Nicolas Christin
2019 Symposium On Usable Privacy and Security  
Furthermore, past field data has indicated that users of built-in, browser-based password managers more often use weak and reused passwords than users of separate password managers that have password generation  ...  Our participants include users who use no password-specific tools at all, those who use password managers built into browsers or operating systems, and those who use separately installed password managers  ...  We would like to thank Chelse Swoopes and Soraya Alli for their assistance with the study design and the interviews.  ...
