Abstract or Summary

Objective – This paper presents the high level conceptual architecture of SUPA, an authentication system that would allow a system to authenticate users without having its own repository of users’ secret identification related data. Methodology/Technique – Central storage and management of user credentials or passwords leave a single tempting repository for the attackers. If the credentials are not stored by a system at all, there will be no stored ‘vault’ to allure the attackers. At the same time, there will be no single resource that holds the credentials of all users of a system. SUPA enables a system to authenticate itself users without having their secret credentials stored in it. Findings – The proposed authentication system uses the features of asymmetric encryption as part of its authentication process. Novelty – SUPA eliminates the requirement of secret user credentials at the system end, the user credentials are retained within the end-user’s devices.
