Gesture based password recognition is an unexplored field of research based on the influence of two main areas: human gesture recognition in Human-Computer Interaction and password management in computer science. We took inspiration from new devices that will be soon commercialized and from latest publications in the field of human computer interaction to develop a sensor equipped glove for password generation through hand gestures. Our study shows that it is possible to store these passwords and to match them with an input password. The number of simultaneous changing variables within a single gesture is considerably high and the level of security of a password depends on both the accuracy and the number of sensors employed. Gesture based passwords does not provide a more secure way of password verification than alphanumeric passwords with our current setup. Although the encouraging results we obtained are based on a limited prototype, the soon available input devices based on hand movement that we found will bring more research to the field.
