In this paper, the authors propose a novel user authentication protocol which is based on multiple factors. The main idea is to improve the security of the authentication protocol by combining multiple authentication factors including biological characteristics, smart card and password together. On one hand, the protocol can provide a better security than that of single factor and double factor authentication protocols. Even if these three authentication factors mentioned above are leaked simultaneously, adversaries cannot break the protocol as long as the keys of the server and the collector are safe.
