According to the American IT company Cloudflare, everyday humanity spends hundreds of years together proving that users are not robots. The company’s team of experts is working on a technology that can forever save everyone from going through tedious, and sometimes humiliating for a thinking being, procedures to confirm their belonging to the human race.
Cloudflare deals with network infrastructure projects, DDoS mitigation, Internet security in general, domain name distribution, and many other services. The company believes that although captcha improves the security of online services, the price is too high.
According to experts, on average, it takes a user 32 seconds to prove that they are not a robot. There are 4.6 billion users in the world and, assuming that everyone sees a picture with the inscription CAPTCHA about once every ten days, it can be calculated that collectively people spend 500 years every day just to confirm their “humanity.”
Cloudflare Research Engineer Thibault Meunier stated: “Today we are launching an experiment to stop this madness. We intend to get rid of captchas completely. The idea is pretty simple: a real person should be able to touch or look at their device to prove that they are human, without revealing their identity. We want you to be able to prove that you are human without revealing what kind of person you are. You may ask, is this even possible? The answer is yes! We start by using trusted USB keys like the YubiKey, but more smartphones and computers are equipped with this technology by default.».
To replace captchas, Cloudflare introduced cryptographic identity verification technology, which the developers say takes 5 seconds and requires a maximum of three clicks to complete the authentication process – much faster than filling in a CAPTCHA field. She intends to implement the Cloudflare system using trusted USB dongles YubiKey, HyperFIDO, and Thetis FIDO U2F.
According to the company, the technology protects user privacy and is not tied to a specific device. In other words, an IT company will allow interested services to make sure that a person is contacting them, but his name, surname, and other data do not matter.
Cloudflare switched to hCAPTCHA “bot detector” last year after Google announced it would charge fees for its reCAPTCHA tool, and has now developed technology to eliminate these checks entirely.
