Authors(2) :-Khevana Shah, Prof. Mital Panchal

A user authentication scheme that uses any form of social knowledge, utilizes users’ trust relationships, monitors users’ social contexts, or records users’ friend associations for granting or denying access to any resource is considered a social authentication scheme. “The direct or indirect utilization of social knowledge or trust relationships in human-computer authentication systems deployed in online or offline contexts.” In this study we analyze the security of social media in basic prospective of type of authentication, possible threats and terms to protect authentication from that threat.
