Why was GPEX created?
GPEX is a product of an academic research on "Designing and developing secure and usable graphical password authentication system which is an alternative to text based authentication systems."
There are suggested alternative authentication models like graphical passwords. However there was no open source implementation as browser extension. With users reviews and suggestions we can improve usability and security of this new authentication method.
Graphical Passwords as Browser Extension: Implementation and Usability Study, Third IFIP WG 11.11 International Conference on Trust Management June 15-19, 2009, Purdue University, West Lafayette, USA
What's next for GPEX
This add-on includes 2 different graphical password models and it is very suitable to add new ones. We believe that GPEX will get new useful features with user experiences and feedbacks
