A General Approach of Authentication Scheme and its Comparative Study

Sanjeev Kumar Mandal, A. R Deepti


The field of information security is a vast area which is continually evolving and expanding relative to network data and global communication security. This literature review contrasts the research that has been published in the area of cryptography and authentication protocols, by providing a comparative and analytical study to secure the web servers and services.
