In this short blog, I share 3 papers and 7 tools that focus on detecting cyber squatting domains (including typosquating, homograph, combosquatting, etc.).

Tools for generating cybersquatting domains (for use in detection)

Lots of other tools/libraries now exist if you need an implementation in a different language. See these github tags for lots more tools: typosquatting, homoglyph, and homograph-attack.

Lastly, if you’re interested in discovering more interesting papers like these, use the method I outlined here.
