In this thesis, present a new secure authentication system is proposed that significantly reducesthe possibility of frauds. This scheme is primarily designed for organizations. It is based on the Kerberoscryptographic framework that has been proven to be secure after being used in real world for decades. Theproposed system allows tokens to be exchanged between the server and clients. The token is generated fromthe client information. A token is cryptographically secure and valid only for the designated client, andtherefore it is robust against eavesdropping. The token is compared of Hash Message Authentication Code(HMAC) patent. It is symmetric key cryptography used to describe the underlying cryptographic schemes, theoperating principles, and the system design. The proposed system provides authentication, for a more secureprotection against the middle attacks. Also increased the timestamp since transports such as RemoteProcedure Call (RPC) and Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) rely on the maximum token size. Show theauthentication of system, and discuss the performance.
