Keywords: Authentication; security; smart cards; usability

Abstract:
Like most security systems, designing a secure two-factor online authentication framework is hard, but designing one that is also intuitive to use and easy to deploy is even harder. While a secure, but overly complex framework may offer little security in the end since it never gets used, an overly simplistic one that focuses merely on usability may gain initial acceptance but will inevitably lead to data breaches. To address this design paradox, we present a new online authentication framework that provides security, usability, and ease of deployment. This framework combines the proven hardware security of smart cards and the universal ease of web access through browsers, without imposing the deployment and usability complexities generally associated with conventional smart card systems. The resulting authentication solution is applicable to existing smart cards already deployed, intuitive for users, and convenient for service provides to both develop and maintain.
