Investigating the Performance of Deep Learning in Detecting Phishing Website
This project investigates the performance of deep learning in detecting the phishing websites. Phishing website is one of the security threats in the Internet that can disturb any web services. The phishing websites aim to steal user’s information, such as usernames, passwords, credit cards including financial details. It is very difficult to identify the difference between phishing and legitimate website. Therefore, the purpose of this project is to investigate the performance of machine learning in classifying the phishing website by using a deep learning model. The deep learning algorithm to learn the URL features identified in the dataset during the training process. The other purpose is to analysis the performance of the technique and model in term of accuracy, precision and recall. The result was compared between the other two classification models which is Random Forest and Decision Tree. The result of accuracy achieved for deep learning model is higher than the other models. The result from this project shows that the model and technique proposed outperforms in terms of accuracy and low error rate.
Submission of an original manuscript to the Journal of Computing Technologies and Creative Content (JTeC) will be taken to mean that it represents original work not previoussly published, that it is not being considered elsewhere for publication. All submitted articles that are published by JTeC cannot be published anywhere by the authors unless with the permission by JTeC Editors. JTeC reserves the right to the publications of the articles it published, and reserves the right to reuse the articles elsewhere for academic purposes, while still retaining the names of the original authors with the original articles.
JTeC takes the stance that the publication of scholarly research is meant to disseminate knowledge and in a not-for-profit regime, benefits neither publisher nor author financially. It sees itself as having obligation to its author and to society to make content available online now that the technology allows for such possibility.
