E-fraud, state of the art and counter measures
This thesis investigates fraud and the situation on Internet with e-commerce
today, to point on some potential threats and needed countermeasures. The
work reviews several state of the art e-fraud schemes, techniques used in
the schemes and statistics on the extent of e-fraud. This part shows that
e-frauds are today both sophisticated and widespread.
Since real world frauds are deemed impossible to fully cover in order to
predict potential new e-frauds, the thesis adopts a different approach. It
suggests two abstraction models for fraud cases, a protocol model and a
functional model. These are used to perform analysis on case studies on both
telecom frauds and e-frauds. The analysis presents characteristics for both
types of frauds. Using one of the abstraction models, the functional model,
conceptually similar cases among telecom frauds as well as e-fraud cases are
identified. The similar cases in each category are then compared, using the
other abstraction model, the protocol model. The study shows that concepts
from telecom frauds already exist in e-frauds.
Several challenges and some possibilities in e-fraud prevention and
detection are also extracted in the comparative study of the different
categories. The major consequence of the challenges is e-frauds
