Efficient Method for Securely Managing Passwords
A password is a secret string that is used for security and authentication purposes and to provide access to a resource. Therefore it is more vulnerable to attacks such as hacking, phishing, identity theft, Cyber stalking and website cloning. But it is difficult for humans to remember large no of passwords. This research is formulated to provide a source to users by which they can conveniently and securely manage their passwords. The user is authorized to enter the site information, ID and password in a list which is secured by a Master Password which is encrypted. AES encryption algorithm is also compared with DES encryption algorithms w.r.t time, size of file after encryption and the authors have concluded that AES algorithm is faster than DES.
