Abstract

This paper details an authentication mechanism aimed to aid individuals with visual impairments in accessing online accounts on desktop computers, and decrease the security threat of observers, or shoulder surfer, by providing an alternative to entering typical alphanumeric passwords on keyboards. The mechanism uses a head-mounted wearable device, Google Glass, because it provides feedback directly to the wearer obscuring it from observers, and it’s easy-to-locate and interact with gesture pad, which accepts input from the user. The mechanism is in preparation to enter the testing phase with individuals of the targeted demographic.
