It has been established that Cloud based Mobile Learning has provided creative opportunities for both teachers and students, as it creates an active learning atmosphere anywhere and anytime. This informal type of learning is supportive in improving the learning competencies of engineering students. Data security has been identified as a major issue of apprehension in the successful implementation of cloud based mobile learning. One of the major security issues encountered in the mobile cloud based learning is the authentication of the legitimate user who wants to get connected to the cloud. Considering the mobile environment, a suitable authentication method has to be invented which provides security without dropping the user convenience of the smart phone users. This article proposes a usable touch stroke interval based authentication method using the game theory approach for the mobile cloud. The proposed authentication method forms a kind of two stroke authentication comprising of username password and touch stroke interval. It was found that the proposed method provides a fairly secure user authentication, yet balancing the usability of smart phone user.
