CAPTCHA Status and Next Steps


I have concluded editing our draft CAPTCHA document for the time being.
Yes, I have made significant and numerous edits since our call.  So, at
your convenience, please review:

In addition to any further edits we may want to make, we still have
broken links to resolve.

I now have a working URI for the Cnet article reference--and it's an
even more meaningful reference in the current draft, imo.

While the specific Anti-Phishing PDF document the 2004 CAPTCHA note
references now yields a 404, the site itself is still functioning. Is
there some specific document there we would choose to point to in our
current note?

Lastly, I have collect terms we may want to include in a glossary. Your
opinions on which to keep, and where to point to in reference to them
are solicited. Here's my current list:


Turing Test

assistive technology

alternative text
Should probably now point to WCAG 2.1 ...

screen reader

web robot

Google Recaptcha



spam filtering


continuous authentication

hot words
I've not found a useful pointer for this one yet.

Bayesian filtering
Too many choices! No winner yet.

Public-key infrastructure

Good source for the term, but not applied to computing!

Chafee Amendment
