Enabling Automatic Password Change in Password Managers Through Crowdsourcing

Mayer, Peter and Berket, Hermann and Volkamer, Melanie (2016):
Enabling Automatic Password Change in Password Managers Through Crowdsourcing.
In: International Conference on Passwords, Springer LNCS, [Conference or Workshop Item]

Abstract

Password managers can immensely increase password security, for laymen and experts alike. One reason for the low adaption is a lack of automatic password change. In this paper, we describe our work on extending password managers towards automatic password change on the web. The main idea is that users can teach the password managers how to change their password on a specific website using a recorder module and share this information (blueprints) with other users, effectively crowdsourcing  the  creation  of  these  blueprints.  Parts  of  the  proposal were implemented as an add-on for the Firefox browser and evaluated in a user study. Our results show that our proposal is viable and usable.
