Easing Text-based Mobile Device User Authentication Mechanisms

The authors discuss how a variety of techniques relevant to text entry or user identification could be used to facilitate reasonably fast and secure methods for authenticating mobile device users. In particular, they explore how mobile device text-entry methods could be used to speed up both the initial authentication of a mobile device user as well as subsequent password entry for authentication to other systems such as password-protected Web sites. They also explore other authentication mechanisms that involve text entry, maintain device security, but avoid the need for a password.
