Anti Phishing using Visual Cryptography
Amit Navarkar | D. A. Phalke 
Abstract: Phishing is done to acquire confidential information such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details by disguising as a legitimate entity in an electronic communication. In this paper we have proposed a new approach named as Anti-phishing using visual cryptography to solve the problem of phishing. Here an image-based authentication is performed using Visual Cryptography. The image captcha is decomposed into two shares that are stored in separate database servers (one with user and one with server) such that the original image captcha is revealed only when both the shares are simultaneously stacked. Once the original image captcha is revealed, the user can use it as the password.
