Multi-Dimension Authentication for Web Service

Abstract :

Recently the web services have been used in most business applications and it’s not just a fad. The shift from traditional software models to the Internet has become a real fact, so the security of data transfer in web services is very important for its survival in which we need to secure it from hacking threats. The brute force attack is considered as one of these threats in which the attacker guesses identity and/or credentials through the use of brute force, but we can avoid this vulnerability by using a strong authentication technique like multi-dimension authentication in which the client authentication not only comprises from username and password but also it will include another factors like one time password, hardware identity and time and the authentication process will be completed by multi-stage that is considered the steps for authentication.
