A password-based authentication is a simple technique used for user authentication of computer or Web services. However, by shoulder surfing passwords maybe are stolen easily. To prevent these attacks we need to shield our keypad from view by using our body or cupping our hand. To hide them easily, it is better that keypad itself or the range of inputting keys is small. We propose inputting a password system with only a few keys. Especially our method can be utilized for people with physical disabilities who is hard to input keys with usual keyboards.
