PhishBouncer project is an advanced Java HTTP(S) proxy with anti-phishing capabilities.

PhishBouncer is an anti-phishing platform based on an HTTP/HTTPS proxy integrating anti-phishing checks that do not depend on block lists or Phish signatures. The checking algorithms make use of the attributes of the web-site being visited, the structure and properties of the referring URL, and the web-site's association with other legitimate web-sites that the user interacts with. The checks are implemented as plug-in interceptors, and it is easy to modify them and add or remove new checks. Apart from defense against Phishing, PhishBouncer is also a platform for developing and testing new anti-Phishing checks.

For ease of rapid prototyping and testing of anti-Phishing checks with real and reliable test data, a crawl-and-drive framework is also provided-- all you need is an APWG membership to be able to download Phish Reports from APWG and follow the instructions provided. This framework will periodically download new Phish URLs from APWG, and visit the Phish sites using the PhishBouncer proxy first without and then with the anti-Phishing checks. All results are logged so that dead or broken sites (i.e., sites that produced errors in either visit) can be culled, and the remaining data can be used to obtain an accurate count of how many Phish sites were flagged by the currently active checks.

The HTTP/HTTPS proxy framework can also be used to insert other types of adaptive behavior in the HTTP/HTTPS based interaction by replacing the plug-in interceptors executing anti-phishing checks by other interceptors that performs logging, filtering (as in parental control), load-balancing, QoS-based redirection etc.

PhishBouncer was developed by BBN under an R&D project supported by the Homeland Security Advanced Research Project Agency (HSARPA), under its Cyber Security R&D program.
