Liao et al.'s has recently announced the suitable authentication scheme for mobile device environment, which can authenticate remote users by using QR code. However, Liao et al.'s scheme cannot satisfy several important security requirements. The biggest drawback of Liao et al. 's scheme is that it is not able to satisfy the mutual authentication between remote users and SP since it is vulnerable to eavesdropping, man-in-the-middle, theft and loss of mobile devices and forgery attack. This
