Title: Password-based authentication: from measurements to solutions

Abstract:
Passwords are still the most common way for user authentication. I have been involved in several projects related to passwords in the last few years. I will discuss the following: (1) Password meter analysis – checking the reliability of strength meters in popular web services and password managers. (2) SafeKeeper: providing password confidentiality against password database breaches, compromised servers, rogue administrators, and phishing attacks. (3) Gracewipe: passwords for coercion-resistant authentication. (4) UVAuth (User-Verified Authentication): protecting passwords against online guessing attacks from large botnets.
