Submission + - Researchers develop 'narrative authentication' system (

hypnosec writes: Researchers have developed a ‘narrative authentication’ system that could put an end to the need of remembering complex passwords to logging onto computer systems. The new system has been developed by Carson Brown and his colleagues over at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada. The main idea behind the system is to log a user’s activities on the system or any other device that he / she may be using and then ask questions about them as and when a user wants to logon to the system next time. Users can interact with the logging software and add their own events in the real world like wedding dates, holidays, travel dates, etc.
