At Microsoft's annual research conference Techfest, a new method to help keep internet services secure was unveiled based on images of cats and dogs. A popular method to determine whether a human or automated software is trying to access an internet service in use today is the Captcha, a series of randomly generated letters and numbers that must be reproduced. Since computers can now read Captcha sequences, which often confuse humans, a new security method has been developed by nations around the globe. The new security feature is based on the idea that a human can easily distinguish a dog from a cat, when an image of one is displayed, whereas an automated piece of software can not because of similarities.
