Graphical authentication technology for protecting home users

D-Link : 18 May, 2009  (New Product)
Captcha from D-Link provides additional layer of protection from malware for home router users
D-Link has become the world's first company to add Captcha to their home routers, providing an extra level of security for its users. With the additional protection provided by Captcha, a graphical authentication technology, home users can now enjoy total peace of mind when surfing the Internet with a D-Link router.

Captcha, Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart, is a challenge response test that ensures that a response is not computer-generated and instead entered by human hand.

By integrating Captcha into its popular home and small office routers as an extra safety measure, D-Link is addressing the recent increase in Internet security attacks on computers through Trojan horses that are downloaded unknowingly by Internet users. These Trojan horses then attack the router and alter their DNS records to divert all traffic through a target network.

By incorporating Captcha testing, D-Link routers are now better equipped against attacks from worms and viruses, protecting users when accessing the Internet.

The Captcha feature is currently available on D-Link's DIR-685 Wireless N Storage Router. The following router models will also shortly incorporate this feature; DIR-615, DIR-635, DIR-655, DIR-825, and DIR-855. Please consult local D-Link country websites for further updates.
