Abstract

In 2006, Das et al. [6] proposed a novel remote user authentication scheme using bilinear pairings. In that scheme, the remote system receives user login request and allows login to the legitimate user. In this paper we present the cryptanalysis of the Das et al. scheme and propose an improved and more secure scheme that enables user to choose and change their password without the help of the remote server.
