Executive Summary

Identity theft refers to the use of another person's identity, usually for the financial gain or for defamatory purposes. Phishing is one method used to perform an identity theft. Many anti-phishing mechanisms focused on the prevention based approaches or detection based approaches, those alone fail to suppress the phishing attacks. In this paper, SENTRY uses a combination of both the approaches and transforms the phishing detection into automatic fraud protection. It detects spoofed web pages where users are intended to submit their information and generates juke, meaningful credentials to hide the real information of the web users.
