Guessing PINs, One Partial PIN at a Time

We created different methods of guessing a person’s PIN, by attempting to guess their partial PIN incrementally in an in-the-wild scenario. We look at the different patterns that result, as well as lengths of guessing time. We wanted to see how secure, in comparison, a full PIN is compared to using partial PINs as means of authentication.
