Abstract

This document will be divided into two main parts. The first one will be the classification of the authentication techniques. We will search the main electronic databases for papers related to authentication techniques. We will then summarize the related papers and show what classifications they use for the authentication techniques. After all of the documents have been read and summarized we will analyse them and group the authentication techniques into the classifications found. For the second part of the document we will focus on the study of usability attributes in the authentication techniques. This to know how authentications techniques compare to one another based on their usability attributes. We will search the main electronic databases for papers related to the usability attributes of authentication techniques based on the usability definition of ISO/IEC 25010 (SQuaRE) and its attributes. We will then summarize the related papers and show what authentication methods they describe and which usability attributes they measure. After all of the documents have been read and summarized we will analyse them depending on their usability attribute. At the end we will elaborate those results to show which authentication techniques have better usability in terms of a specific usability attribute. This will help practitioners who are interested in using authentication methods but want or need to focus on a specific usability attribute. They will be able to use this as a guide to help them chose the best option that fits their purpose.
