How to Login from an Internet Cafe Without Worrying about Keyloggers

Dinei Florencio and Cormac Herley

Abstract

Roaming users who use untrusted machines to access password protected accounts have few good options. An internet cafe machine can easily be running a keylogger. The roaming user has no reliable way of determining whether it is safe, and has no alternative to typing the password. We describe a simple trick the user can employ that is entirely effective in concealing the password.
