Method of Encrypted Password using personal secret information

Method of Encoded Password using personal secret information

This article describes a new method of encoding password. Using personal secret information, or the other information only known to the user, combined with algorithm given randomly by the server, the password will be more secure while user input it.

Background

Problem Solved

People always concern about the security of password, especially the password of bank card. When the user draws the money by ATM or laptop, the password maybe is stolen. So people do everything possible to design to change password combination to prevent its theft.

Known Solutions/Drawbacks

Generally, a person set six digits as the password to use.In order to memorize easily, most of the digit combinations are special for the owner, once the password is set, it is usually not updated for a long time. When it is used to draw the money, it maybe is peeped by someone that have an ulterior motive, or it is stolen bythe way of keyboard record, screen capture, or by the way to intercept data packets to get to bring to the loss of property.

Why Additional Solution is Required

This solution is to encrypt the password, everyone still needs to set its own password, this password is named initial password. When user enter a password, user can encrypt it again, so the number input by the keyboard is the number after encrypted, even if someone can intercept these numbers, they are not the real password, but the password after encrypted, in the case that can't get more information, it is difficult to get the original password, which avoid to be stolen effectively.

Summary of Invention Core Ideas:

Add one password encryption mechanism:

1. Register user's personal information when user set up the account 2. Set the original password 3. Add one module in ATM or online banking, this moduleis used to encrypt the password. When user select to use encrypt password, this module will prompt one encryption method, such as: "please add your birthday date to your original password then input this number." Then the password input i...
