Unique set of left and right click from mouse to authenticate a user

Problem:

Scenarios where keyboard (and monitors) are not useful to operate the device or computer application but are just plugged in there for the only use of authentication of valid user. Keyboard being plugged in all the time can be avoided by having a mouse or any two button interface (4 button if even monitor is removed).

Solution:

Solution suggested assumes user has a string of digits as password of any length. It is also assumed that userid and password are set by usual process and are stored already. Now considering left clicks for odd place and right click for even position, clicks can be used to enter

password by clicking over an icon.

Implementation:
For example, password is "2311"

Can be input by clicking on "Click Here button":
Two left click (2), Three right click (3), One left click (1), One right click (1)

Considerable left side movement of mouse can be considered "RESET"

Considerable right side movement of mouse can be considered "SUBMIT"

Other buttons:
A "Userid Area" as usual to select a user from "list" or "drop down".

A "submit button", once the user has clicked as required.

A "Reset button", if by mistake clicked wrong and want to start all over again before submission A "Box Area" (optional) that changes color with every click to help user to acknowledge his input.
