Abstract—Authentication of remote user and server is a great research challenge in today’s advanced wired and wireless communication. Recently Das proposed a flexible remote system authentication using smart card . Xu et al. proved that Khan et al.’s fingerprint based remote user authentication is vulnerable to the impersonation and parallel session attack . In this paper, we show that Das’s scheme is not withstand the reverse XOR and adversary system attack. We also propose an improved remote user and server authentication that verifies the authenticity of user by user’s password, smart card and biometric property of user. The technique is insulated from the reverse XOR, adversary system, impersonation and parallel session attacks.
