A Survey Paper on Wireless Authentication in ATMs Using GSM Technology

Kranti N. Gule, Rohit N. Devikar, Sudip K. Hase


Due to public location and permanent availability
multiple people depends on the automated teller machine (ATM)
center. Due to that they can easily fall victim to manipulation.
Nowadays automated teller machine is essential part of our daytoday
life and frauds related to that also get increased. So,new methods for
authentication mechanisms are get developed to reduce the ATM
security problems related to personal identification numbers (PIN).
All those mechanisms are usually judged on the basis of speed,
security, and memorability in comparison with traditional PIN entry
mechanism. In PIN based ATM authentication 4 digit number is
given to the system which is unique number. Here doing the survey
of daytoday life ATM use, which provide both a better
understanding of PIN-based ATM authentication, and on how
alternative authentication methods compared and evaluated. From
these findings, draw the several implications for the design of
alternative ATM authentication systems, such as resilience to
distraction and social security.
