Abstract: The basic goal of information security is, to protect the privacy, reliability, and availability of information on devices that manipulate and store the information. To protect this information, the fundamental step is user authentication. The most common method for authentication on devices is the personal identification number (PIN) method, which is vulnerable to shoulder surfing attack. Shoulder surfing attack used by attacker especially in the crowded public places. For shoulder surfing attack prevention several methods had been proposed. This paper proposed a Gaze Touch Cross PIN authentication method that overcome the limitations found in the earlier work. we propose a multimodal authentication system that combines between the gaze gesture and touch PIN authentication systems. The results illustrate that the proposed Gaze Touch Cross PIN method is more secure hence it decreases the shoulder surfing rate in both side attacks and iterative attacks.
