Description

Internet bad actors have long been known to register look-alike domains and stand up phishing sites and create spam campaigns in order to hoodwink users into revealing personal information including login credentials, credit card numbers and social security numbers. Detecting and combatting criminal activity related to look-alike domains becomes a much more difficult problem when you start adding International Domain Names (IDNs) into that mix.

This talk will focus on Farsight's work with real-time detection of in-use IDN homographs.

This presentation will feature:

  • Discussion of our method of detection/collection
  • Overview of the analysis of a large corpus of "a year in the life of IDNs" including in-the-weeds analysis using various views of the corpus
  • Gallery/discussion of a few real-world examples of detected (previously-) live phishing sites
  • Call-to-action for awareness and up-stream mitigation

Summary

This talk will focus on Farsight's work with real-time detection of in-use IDN homographs.

Talk Duration 30 Minutes
