What is Gausebeck-Levchin Test ?

What is Gausebeck-Levchin Test? 

Dear Friends,

  We promised you in our last posting that we will post about Pay Pal as now a days Pay Pal is most trusted and believable transaction for e-marketing and e-payment for your personal liabilities and we will keep our word, which we promised before you and that is why we are going to introduce the Gausebeck-Levchin test and this is the security test of Pay Pal. All of we know that for opening a Pay Pal Account we don’t need money we only need a valid e-mail id so any one can open a Pay Pal Account and continue their transaction by using the stolen credit card number or debit card number and in these cases if it happens that the Account was opened by using a “bot” (Robot type computer program) and at the same time the transaction is generated by that robot programming then its not possible to stop the fraud and spammers So for preventing fraud during transaction Max Rafael Levchin, an Ukraine born computer scientist and co-founder of Pay Pal, introduced a CAPTCHA test during transaction and that is called Gausebeck-Levchin Test as the bot programming cannot read the words on the capture and only human can decrypt that. This is the first commercial implementation of CAPTCHA test.

  So a question may arise in your mind that what is CAPTCHA test? CAPTCHA test is the abbreviated form of Completely Automated Public Turing Test to Tell Computers and Humans Apart. Actually it is a human verification test. When you enter in a yahoo chat room you find a box where few words are written in a typical manner and you have to put those words in the box below and if it matches then you get the permission to enter into the room and allow chatting. So you will ask why this is needed. This is needed as spammers may enter in the room for advertising their site by using “bot” programming and the spammers can’t pass the CAPTCHA test so the chatting personalities present must be there and there IP addresses will be tracked for future references.  

  We think this will help you in future and keep in mind before doing cyber crime where the CAPTCHA test exists.

Thank You
