Efficient Multi Server Authentication and Hybrid Authentication Method

Password is used for authentication on many major client-server system, websites etc. Client and a server share a password using Password-authenticated key exchange to authenticate each other and establish a cryptographic key by exchanging generated exchanges. In this scenario, all the passwords are stored in a single server which will authenticate the client. If the server stopped working or compromised, for example, hacking or even insider attack, passwords stored in database will become publicly known. This system proposes that setting where multiple servers which are used to, so that the password can be split in these servers authenticate client and if one server is compromised, the attacker still cannot be able to view the client’s information from the compromised server. This system uses the Advance encryption standard algorithm encryption and for key exchange and some formulae to store the password in multiple server. This system also has the hybrid authentication as another phase to make it more secure and efficient. In the given authentication schema we also use SMS integration API for two step verification.

We have kept IJCERT is a free peer-reviewed scientific journal to endorse conservation. We have not put up a paywall to readers, and we do not charge for publishing. But running a monthly journal costs is a lot. While we do have some associates, we still need support to keep the journal flourishing. If our readers help fund it, our future will be more secure.
