Abstract: This paper presents the design and implementation of QRP, an open source proof-of-concept authentication system that uses a two-factor authentication by combining a password and a camera-equipped mobile phone, acting as an authentication token. QRP is extremely secure as all the sensitive information stored and transmitted is encrypted, but it is also an easy to use and cost-efficient solution. QRP is portable and can be used securely in untrusted computers. Finally, QRP is able to successfully authenticate even when the phone is offline.
