Password authentication schemes can be divided into two types. One requires the easy-to-remember password, and the other requires the strong password. In 2000, Sandirigama et al. proposed a simple and secure password authentication protocol (SAS). Then, Lin et al. showed that SAS suffers from two weaknesses and proposed an improvement (OSPA) in 2001. However, Chen and Ku pointed out that both SAS and OSPA are vulnerable to the stolen-verifier attack. We also find that these two protocols lack the property of mutual authentication. Hence, we propose an improvement of SAS and OSPA to defend against the stolen-verifier attack and provide mutual authentication in this paper.
