Asynchronous Password-Based Authentication and Service_Provider_ID Module for Secured Cloud Environment

S. Sudha and S. S. Manikandasaran
Abstract—Clouds are now considered as the dawn of Computing Technology. As the people of Information Technology, Business, and other Organization are living in Cloud Generation and Cloud environment offers umpteen of services over the Internet, security concepts like confidentiality and authentication mechanisms require being more robustness to foil the attempt of unauthorized persons. A very crucial security function of the cloud environment is user authentication. Previously, many authentication mechanisms such as simple username and password with OTP, Graphical password, Smart Card based mechanism, and Biometrics were devised, but those were suffered from various attacks by the hackers, computational cost, and expensive to implement. Moreover, the Cloud environment is now requiring innovative and sturdy authentication mechanismto make an authentication process more complicated; this paper proposes a multi-level - Asynchronous Password-based authentication process and Service_Provider_ID module. This mechanism provides a different and distinctive password for every session, which ensures a well-built authentication process and harmonizing of Service Provider ID and User Session ID validates the User session with the Cloud environment. This uniqueness leads to the highly secured authentication process in the Cloud environment.

Index Terms—Asynchronous password, cloud computing, multi-level authentication, service provider id, user session-id.
