PerCaptcha Control Protection Modes

There are two major solutions for protection against automated form submissions by using KT.UI Captcha control for ASP.NET.
  • Image with modified symbols. This is the most commonly used and also most scured captcha protection strategy. The image symbols are displayed in a form, and the user is required to input the symbols in a textbox. Here is the concept: if the input symbols are correct, the captcha component configures that the user is not a robot because it is not yet possible for robots to identify and input distorted symbols. There is a set of properties that characterize the image: noise factors, image, text, captcha session expiration time and captcha error message to be displayed if the entered value was incorrect.
  • Automatic robots discovery - this solution needs to judge whether the input comes from a robot or not based on the predefined rules. This strategy is not 100% secure and some sophisticated robots may pass it. You can decide to use which predefined rules. For this strategy, two implemented rules that could be applied either separately or simultaneously:
    • Minimum form submission time - the presumption is simple to understand, that is a human cannot input the fields in a form correctly for a time less than 3 seconds (this is set by default, and could be modified). Thus, if the time for submission is less than 3 seconds, it is assumed that the executor is a robot.
    • Invisible textbox in the form - this rule requires the insertion of a textbox which is not visible when the form is styled. If the textbox is detected by a robot and certain data is entered, then, we can consider the executor to be a robot.
