Phishing is a form of online identity theft associated with both social engineering and technical subterfuge and is a major threat to information security and personal privacy. Here, the authors present an effective image-based antiphishing scheme based on discriminative keypoint features in Web pages. Their invariant content descriptor, the Contrast Context Histogram (CCH), computes the similarity degree between suspicious and authentic pages. The results show that the proposed scheme achieves high accuracy and low error rates.
