Abstract or Summary:
In this paper we consider a set of metrics for comparing different authentication scheme. We describe a model for an authentication system; unlike other models, this one is oriented towards implementation and not cryptographic properties. We compare several authentication systems within the framework of this model using as metrics the size and probability distribution of authenticators provided by the system, the ease of use, and the ease of abuse by attackers.
