Abstract: In today's cloud computing technology, protecting data from unauthorized access is the major issue. The numerical passwords named as traditional authentication techniques are widely popular. The passwords consists of alphanumeric characters have their own drawbacks by shoulder surfing and dictionary attacks. To jump on such attacks, graphical passwords are implemented to make longer memorable and easy to use. In this paper, we will propose reliable authentication using graphical password for securing cloud data. We enable the platform for users to click on images as a password rather than group of alphanumeric character.
