Abstract:- -This article presents puzzle based authentication scheme in which cloud user registers and solves the puzzle, puzzle solving time and sequence of image block is stored and validated by local server and the cloud user get authenticated and start accessing the cloud services. The article includes details of puzzle based authentication scheme are presented along with design, algorithm, security and implementation
