In today’s world the password security is very important. For password protection various techniques are available. Cued Click Points are a click-based graphical password scheme, a cued-recall graphical password technique. Users Click on one point per image for a sequence of images. The next image is based on the previous click-point. The passwords which are easy to memorize are chosen by the users and it becomes easy for attackers to guess it, but the passwords assigned by the strong system are difficult for users to remember. In this paper, we focus on the evaluation of graphical password authentication system using Cued Click Points, including usability and security. In this authentication system, our usability goal is to support the users in selecting better passwords, thus increases the security by expanding the effective password space. The emergence of hotspots is mainly because of poorly chosen passwords. Thus click-based graphical passwords encourage users to select more random, and hence more complex to guess, click-points.
