Abstract: Anti-phishing I-voting system using Visual Cryptography (VC) aims at providing a facility to cast vote for critical and confidential internal corporate decisions. The user or the employee is allowed to cast his or her vote from any remote place. The election is held in full confidentiality where the user is allowed to vote only if he logs into the system by entering the correct password. The password is generated by merging two shares using VC scheme. Before the election administrator sends share 1 to the voterís e-mail id and share 2 will be available in the voting system for his login during election. Voter then combines share 1 and share 2 using VC to get the secret password. No information can be revealed by observing any one share. Phishing is an attempt by an individual or a group to get personal confidential information from unsuspecting victims. Phishing is typically carried out by email spoofing or instant messaging and it often directs users to enter personal information at a fake website.
