Scraping is the activity of retrieving data from a website, often in an automated manner and without the permission of the owner. This data can further be used by the scraper in whatever way he desires. The activity is deemed illegal, but the change in legality has not stopped people from doing the same. Anti-scraping solutions are being offered as rather expensive services, which although are effective, are also slow. This paper aims to list challenges and proposes mitigations techniques to develop a Software as a Product (SaaP) anti-scraping application for small to medium scale websites.
