Cryptanalysis and Improvement of a Two-Factor User Authentication Scheme  

Recently, Wang-Wang have discussed a two birds with one stone: two-factor authentication with security beyond conventional bound. We find that this scheme is vulnerable to the password exposure attack and also does not offer user anonymity, which is an important feature for some of the applications like e-healthcare services, e-banking, etc. In this paper, we provide the solution to these problems.
