Abstract: Recently, researchers have proposed several nice multi-server authentication protocols. They claim that their protocols are secure and can withstand various attacks. However, after reviewing their schemes, we found that they although are perfect whereas flawed. Due to this observation, in this paper, we list the weakness found in these recent literatures.
