Abstract: Due to the immense technological growth, web and its related applications are becoming a major part of everyday life. The growth of the internet and technology not only increases the positive benefits but also increases negative activities such as data theft. As web applications are used frequently for many online services, it is the most common and valuable target for the adversary to host any web vulnerabilities. Data theft or data stealing attacks are quite common in the web and the internet with severe consequences. The private data are generally stored on the system which gives an opportunity for the attacker to steal the data from the storage or during transit. However, apart from stealing the critical data from the user, the attacker also steals the sensitive data from the web applications. This type of attack takes several forms for stealing perilous information from the user and web application. Unfortunately, these attacks are easy to execute as the attacker needs only the internet connection, a web server and technical knowledge which are readily available. Several prevention strategies exist to thwart the user and the application from the web attacks, however, they do not provide the complete solution. This paper presents the signature based key exchange to prevent the user as well as the web application from several variations of data stealing attacks through mutual attestation. The experimental results show that the proposed method prevents the user and application from data theft than any other existing methods.
