Phishing is a criminal activity, fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies to induce individuals to reveal their information such as passwords, credit card number, etc. online. It has always been a simple and effective way to steal the credential of the user mainly on internet banking and e-commerce. All though methods like security image, etc. have been used but they have often proven ineffective. In order to avoid phishing in particular, we have made use of Visual Cryptography at login level on websites to verify its own identity and prove that it is a genuine website before the end users and make both the sides of the system secure as well as an authenticated one. This technique not only allows website to prove its identity but also adds another layer of security on it. This project makes use of Visual Cryptography Schema (VCS) to add an image based security for authentication for both the user and the website. The authentication was achieved by the three layer of checking which includes the password, security code and then the one-time password. The security code and the password will be given by the user during the process of registration. Once this is validated, the one-time password will be sent to the user to their mail ID.
