Survey on Identification of Hacker by Trapping Mechanism
Advanced persistence threat APT attack is to steal data rather than to cause damage to the network or organization. It is one of the initial phases in successful hacking of a system. Here, user’s behaviour is analysed based on previous behaviour such as posted data, time of posting, IP address and location of usage of social network. This system includes two processes. The Social network accounts are analysed, tracked and then detected. If the hacker attacks the original user’s account, then the system allows the attacker to proceed further until our system captures all the important information about the attacker by directing the hacker to the fake website. The system generates Honeywords based on the user information provided and the original password is converted into another format and stored along with the honeywords. Attacker who knows the E mail account of original user can easily reset the password of the cloud server. When the attacker tries to login into the purchase portal, he she is tracked and allowed to do purchase. Server identifies the attacker and sends an alert message to the owner and blocks the attacker from doing transaction from his original account.
