Abstract

Passwords and PINs are used to protect all kinds of ser-vices against adversaries in our everyday lives. To servetheir purpose, passwords require a certain degree of com-plexity which is often enforced through password policies.This results in complicated passwords, which might not onlybe hard for users to create, but also hard to remember. Fur-thermore, users might reuse passwords which they feelare secure. We present a scheme for deterministic pass-word generation that solves these problems by assisting theuser in generating and remembering passwords. The pass-words are generated based on previously stored meta data(e.g., policies) and a master password. Since the passwordgeneration is deterministic, only the master password is required to recreate the passwords. As proof of concept weimplemented a mobile app and pre-evaluated it. The pre-evaluation indicates that our scheme offers a good usability.
