iTrustPage: A User-Assisted Anti-Phishing Tool
Despite the many solutions proposed by industry and the research community to address phishing attacks, this problem continues to cause enormous damage. Because of its inability to deter phishing attacks, the research community needs to develop new approaches to anti-phishing solutions. This paper presents iTrustPage - an anti-phishing tool that does not rely completely on automation to detect phishing. Instead, iTrustPage relies on user input and external repositories of information to prevent users from filling out phishing Web forms. With iTrustPage, users help to decide whether or not a Web page is legitimate. Because iTrustPage is user-assisted, iTrustPage avoids the false positives and the false negatives associated with automatic phishing detection.
