AbstractPhishing is the act of impersonating another party to attack a user, usually stealing information or money. In darknets, where participants are usually anonymous, phishing is a huge problem. We describe the current state of phishing in darknets, especially the Tor network. We analyse what techniques attackers can use to impersonate other services as well as develop some metrics to automatically detect phishing pages. Existing solutions against phishing are presented and phishing detection in the clearnet is examined on the transferability to darknets.
