Phishing Attack Prevention in Corporate Companies for Internet Voting with Secure Authentication

IJCSEC Front Page

Corporations and organizations routinely use Internet voting to elect officers and Board members and for other proxy elections. Online voting refers to both the electronic means of casting a vote and the electronic means of tabulating votes. Using just a small sample of reported phishing content, a fairly good picture of which hosting providers may be more vulnerable to compromise or more forgiving of malicious behavior can be captured. This information can be useful when considering where to host the website or online service. Voting system with Visual Cryptography has been used for an efficient authentication of users to cast vote for confidential internal corporate decisions. Voters who bypass authentication or have already voted are denied access to the ballot. One-vote-per-voter is guaranteed by marking electors as voted and storing the vote in a single transaction. The election is held in full confidentiality by applying appropriate security measures to allow the voter to vote for any participating candidate only if the candidate logs into the system by entering the correct password which is generated by merging the two shares using VC scheme. Administrator sends share 1 to voter e-mail id before election and share 2 will be available in the voting system for candidate’s login during election. Voter will get the secret password to cast the vote by combining share 1 and share 2 using Visual Cryptography. Thus a new approach is proposed to protect users across a network from phishing attacks.
