Abstract :

User account management is an important task in all applications. Online services are employed to support mail, chat, media data sharing and social network features. User ID and password are the key requirements in the user authentication process. Security questions and alternate mail account details are required in the account verification process due to password missing problems. Security and reliability issues are raised in the security questions and alternate mail account based methods.  Account recovery is achieved with backup authentication methods. Contact based user verification scheme uses the trustees that are selected from the contact list of the user account. Verification codes are issued to the trustees for the user account recovery process. The password recovery is achieved with K verification codes that are received from the trustees. Trustee based authentication model is threaten by forest fire attacks. Compromised users are used to iteratively attack the social authentication mechanism. Forest fire attacks are handled with probabilistic models. Defense methods are applied to discover and control the forest fire attacks. Time limit based account recovery mechanism is adapted to control the forest fire attacks. Social authentication process is enhanced with multi level trustee based verification mechanism. The attack controlling scheme is employed with multiple service based account verification mechanism. The system is equipped with service level, user level and hierarchical level trustees for account recovery process.
