Title: GRAPHICAL PASSWORDS SYSTEM AND A METHOD FOR AUTHENTICATING A USER OF A COMPUTER SYSTEM
Abstract:
The invention relates to systems and methods of authenticating users of electronic devices and computer systems. The method comprises: storing at least one set (Si, S2,... Sn) of symbols in the storage unit of the server B; storing the selected password in a storage unit of the server A; the selected password being a graphical password comprising one or more password elements sequentially selected from at least one set (Si, S2,... Sn) of symbols stored in the storage unit of the server B; generating by the server B one or more images, each representing a combination of symbols randomly selected from one or more sets (Si, S2,... Sn) of symbols; sending to the server A the image(s) selected by a user using the means for inputting information; analysing by the server A whether the received selected image(s) contain the same number and all password elements stored in its storage unit and whether said password elements were obtained in the same sequence as they are stored in the storage unit; authenticating the user if the sequentially obtained selected image(s) contain the same number and all password elements stored in the storage unit of the server A and if said password elements were obtained in the same sequence as they are stored in the storage unit of the server A.
