Description

LOGIN METHOD ON INTERNET USING ACCOUNT AUTHENTICATION INFORMATION

Technical Field

The present invention relates to a login method on internet using account authentication information, and more particularly, to a login method on internet using account authentication information, wherein when the user wants to connect with other internet sites after connecting with a registered account site, authentication information corresponding to the internet site is transferred automatically to the objective address site to perform authentication for a subscriber in the internet site.

Background Art

Generally, in order to connect with the internet site with the subscriber system which requires the authentication procedure, a user shifts to the objective address site to be connected by using his bookmark information and then goes through a subscriber authentication procedure. However, if the user has too many internet sites which he has subscribed to, then the user may have difficulty in managing, e.g., remembering the subscriber authentication information such as user IDs or passwords.

Disclosure of Invention The present invention is to solve the above problem in the prior art. The object of the invention is to provide a login method on internet using account authentication information wherein, by organizing a database of subscriber authentication information which is map-tabled so that the address of each internet site and subscriber authentication information for login such as the ID or password in the site can be matched mutually, by detecting the authentication information corresponding to an address of a specific internet site entered by a user from the database, and by transferring the detected authentication information to the objective address site, the user can automatically perform a login to the objective site without entering the required authentication information. To achieve the aforementioned object, the login method for internet connection according to the present invention comprises the steps of performing a login by a user to an automatic login service server through an account connection; attempting to perform a login by the user to a specific internet site; retrieving an authentication address corresponding to an address of the internet site and an authentication information corresponding to the authentication address from a database of map-tabled subscriber authentication information by the server; performing an automatic login using the retrieved authentication information by the server in which the authentication information is transferred to the internet site; and transferring a screen display after login by the server to the user when the login has been completed using the retrieved authentication information.

Furthermore, the database of map-tabled subscriber-authentication information includes internet addresses for internet connection, login processing page's addresses corresponding to the internet addresses, and subscriber authentication information (ID, password, etc.) related to the internet addresses. Moreover, the step of performing a login by a user to an automatic login service server further includes a step of providing the user with the database for subscriber authentication, in which the user can add/delete addresses of internet sites being used to/from the database and modify subscriber authentication information for the user in the database. In addition, an exchange of information between the server and the internet site or between the user and the server is carried out through a data-encoding function.

Meanwhile, the database of map-tabled subscriber authentication information is a database to manage desired internet addresses for internet connection, login processing page's addresses corresponding to the internet addresses, and subscriber authentication information such as String name for ID input box and String name for password input box related to the login processing page's addresses. The database of map-tabled subscriber authentication information is interconnected with a part for processing the internet address/subscriber authentication information, and thus, when an internet site address is entered by the user, the part for processing the internet address/subscriber authentication information outputs a login address and subscriber authentication information corresponding to the internet address from the database and transfers them to the corresponding internet site.

The transfer of the authentication address/authentication information means the function that transfers the authentication address and the authentication information corresponding thereto to the objective address site. Brief Description of Drawings

Figure 3 is a view for showing an example of subscriber authentication information a database.

Best Mode for Carrying Out the Invention Hereinafter, a login method on internet using account authentication information according to the present invention will be explained in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

Figure 1 is a block diagram for showing a basic constitution of the present invention, in which a part for processing an internet address/subscriber authentication information 20 has a database with internet addresses map-table 30 and a database subscriber authentication information 40, internet addresses map-table 30 consisting login processing page's addresses which including internet addresses, login processing page's addresses, ID, password and Other information string for connection, and a database subscriber authentication information 40 corresponding to the login processing page's addresses for internet connection which including home page names, internet addresses, authentication ID, authentication password, and Other information string for login. Firstly, the user enters the desired internet address (block 10). Otherwise, the user may connect with the desired internet site with ease by using his bookmark. Next, the part for processing the internet address/subscriber authentication information 20 searches a login processing page's address corresponding to the entered address of the internet site from internet addresses map-table 30 and a database subscriber authentication information 40 and then retrieves an authentication information corresponding to the searched login processing page's address. Finally, the authentication information is transferred to the internet site which the user wants to connect with (block 50), and accordingly, the user can connect with the internet site requiring the authentication without separately entering subscriber authentication information for login.

Figure 2 is a view for showing an example of internet address map table. It is including internet address and subscriber authenticating addresses corresponding to said internet address, it can retrieve subscriber authenticating addresses corresponding to addresses by assigning said internet address.

Figure 3 is a view for showing an example of subscriber authentication information a database. Date related to ID for authentication and password for authentication corresponding to internet addresses for online connection, saved in subscriber authentication information a database, it can related to ID for authentication and password for authentication corresponding to addresses by assigning said internet address.

A preferred embodiment of the present invention will be described below. Firstly, when the user enters the address of the internet site "www.idbook.net," the server searches authentication information for the internet site related to the user on the map-table. Thereafter, the server connects with the site, retrieves the login processing page's address "www.idbook.net/login.asp," and provides authentication information on the user. Whether the user's login is accepted or not in the login processing page's address is determined depending on the provided authentication information. If the login is accepted, the site transfers a home page based upon the login, and the server transfers the home page to the user. As mentioned above, the server executes the login procedure on behalf of the user.

Meanwhile, when the user clicks the internet home page name registered in the bookmark of the browser, the server of the manager side confirms the internet address provided by the browser and executes the authentication procedure on behalf of the user, so that the user can connect with the internet site with ease.

In another preferred embodiment of the present invention, a data encoding technology can be applied to the present invention for the prevention of hacking or the security of information, so that someone else may be prevented from reading or looking through information during a transfer of information between the server and the internet site or between the user and the server.

Although the present invention has been described with reference to the above preferred embodiments, it should be understood that any changes or modifications may be made without departing from the scope and spirit of the invention and that they will be within the scope of the present invention which is defined in the claims attached hereto.

Industrial Applicability According to the login method on internet using account authentication information of the present invention, when the user attempts to connect with an internet site, the corresponding authentication information is transferred /inputted automatically to the internet site, and thus, the accuracy and promptness of the subscriber authentication procedure can be considerably increased. Since subscriber authentication information is made into and managed by a database, it is possible to efficiently manage the authentication information even if the number of internet addresses increases. Also, since authentication information is transferred directly to the objective address of the internet site requiring an authentication of the subscriber, authentication information can be prevented from being missing and internet connection errors due to an inaccurate input can be prevented. Moreover, the data- encoding function can prevent infringement such as information outflow or data alteration.
