Password Based Cryptography


  • Esmeralda Kadëna

    () (Óbuda University)


Nowadays the use of smartphones have become an inevitable part of our lives. The mobile revolution offers new ways of working, increasing efficiency and responsiveness of users in different environments. The concern is that with comfort and convenience also come security risks. Security is a key component in any mobile device management strategy. What might be convenient for users, might be convenient for attackers. Here the focus is on the human factor as the weakest link in this field. To develop this work I am concentrated in these research questions: “How users contribute to smartphone security threats?” and “How can we help on minimizing the risks that the use of smartphone brings?”. The aim is to provide an easy and concise view of different threats and possible solutions. I am based on reviewing literature to find the most common threats, to see how users contribute on them and how their solutions are introduced. By analyzing the findings there are given some estimations of the possible threats and suggestions for average users and enterprises to improve the security of daily life operations.
