DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF FOLDER LOCKER APPLICATION FOR WINDOWS OS USING C#NET. A RESEARCH PROJECT MATERIAL ON COMPUTER SCIENCE EDUCATION
Now a day’s most of the user are facing problem for providing the security to the folder, so that it will not be accesses by the unauthorised user. Sometimes our folder is going to be corrupted by the viruses which will corrupt our important files. Taking in action all these problems I have designed a model which will provide a best security to a folders and also save it from the viruses using password authentication model. A Password based System are the systems in which alphanumeric password will be used for securing it as a pass key. Alphanumeric passwords are generally used for authentication process in most of the current systems. These passwords are usually short and memorable that’s why they can be easily guessed by the attacker, but strong system-assigned password are difficult to remember. This research presents a detailed evaluation of the Persuasive Cued Click Points password scheme which provides high level of security and provides security to your folder with a platform independent environment. This research also presents the SHA (secure hash algorithm) implementation used by the software for folder security used for folder security in java.
1.1 Background of the Research
Because of the increasing threat to computer system and the information they store and process are valuable resources which need to be protected. Authentication refers to the techniques where users have to prove the claim of their identity to the identifier. There are many techniques through which users can be authenticated. Some of the password authentication techniques are knowledge based, token based, and biometric. Text password based technique and graphical password based technique comes under knowledge based authentication technique. A text password is a secret word or string of character that is used for user authentication to proven identity or for access approval to gain access to a resource. The easier a password is for the owner to remember generally means it will be easier for an attacker to guess.
