ABSTRACT
Passwords often used to secure computers and information. Passwords must be
secure and easy to use. Traditionally used passwords are text-based passwords that use
letters and numbers. However, text-based passwords are long and uncomfortable to users to
use and are easy to steal from others. Today passwords are required to meet the needs of
modern societies. Graphical passwords, which are recognized as an alternative to text-
based passwords, have the potential to be superior to text-based passwords in terms ease of
use and security. Many researches have been carried out in various places to realize a useful
graphical password authentication system using this potential. In this technique,
comparisons made between PassPositions and PassPositions-II, which are recently
announced graphical password authentication systems. PassPositions-II is a successor to
PassPositions, a graphical password authentication system with improved usability and
security.
