Phishing is an attempt by an individual or a group to acquire personal confidential information such as passwords, credit card information etc. from unsuspecting victims for identity theft, financial gain and other fraudulent activities. Hackers hosts similar website to misguide the user and store the confidential information of the user to their own website by providing link. Without proper safeguards, applications are vulnerable to various forms of security attack. Thus it is very important for the users to identify the fake and genuine website. Thus the online security is major part websites. In this paper we have proposed a new approach for the identification of genuine server named as Secure Server Verification by Using RSA Algorithm and Visual Cryptography to solve the problem of phishing. Here an image based authentication using Visual Cryptography (VC) is used and the encryption algorithm is used.
