Abstract: Security is of paramount importance in any data critical applications or software. Traditional ways of authenticating and authorizing an individual, like username/password combinations are inherently error prone due to a variety of facts. Such as forgetting of the said combination, multiple simultaneous logins, and the actual hacking of the pair, using brute force and decryption algorithms. This paper we research on multitude of ways on enhancing the security on multiple levels and propose a new methodology which logistically provides more secure and more exclusive nature of a bond between the user and a system, this paper proposes the use of PKI for the said conception of the additional layer of security.
