Abstract


Humongous amount of data and information are generated by users everyday which are private, thus needed to be secured and protected. We are using the concept of honeywords to increase the security of the system. Honeywords are basically dummy passwords created by the system which is stored along with the actual user password. When an adversary steals the password file and tries one of the honeywords, the user is immediately informed about this activity.
