As the online game continued to flourish, the problems accompanied with it are threatening the stability and order of the cyber-society. Information security becomes one of the main problems to be solved in the game industry. Since authentication is the first safeguard of information security, this study will explore the players’ acceptance of authentication mechanisms provided by the online game makers. There are several mechanisms such as smart cards, dynamic passwords, secure socket layer (SSL) enhancement, screen login, etc. available for users. We apply to the model of Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology to study online game authentication behavior patterns from the four constructs of performance expectations, ease of use, social impact, as well as help desk. In addition, we will check the impact of four interference variables of gender, education level, experience, financial affordability on the above four constructs. The results of the study provide a valuable reference for domestic software vendors in deciding their online game authentication mechanism. Advisor Committee Patrick S. Chen - advisor
