CrYpTo-CAPTCHA ALGORITHM
Thomas Mazzi thomas_mazzi@hotmail.com Introduction Abstract It is an algorithm to exchange a key on a pu lic an! insecure channel" eliminating the technological a!#antage o$ the ig ea#es!ropper organizations. General in ormation %he algorithm&s name !eri#es $rom the captcha technology applie! to cryptography system. Preliminar! 'uman rain coul! e consi!ere! as a super parallel computer a#aila les to all users. It can per$orm a complicate! operation as the recognition o$ $igures" o$ soun!s an! sentences $rom semantic point o$ #ie( in a $e( millisecon! ut it is slo( to search the !ata in a list or execute $e( simple serial operations as mathematical $ormula an! its memory is accesse! y contents. %he computer (orks in opposite !irection" it per$orms the serial operations )uickly ut it can&t recognize the $igures or the soun!s meaning e$$iciently an! its memory is accesse! y a!!ress. Theor! Pre ace *lice an! +o (ants exchange the key. ,#e is a ig ea#es!roppe! organization. In action *lice generates a long ran!om string -ex. 10000 chars or more. an! calculates $or any 10 chars group shi$te! -see $ig. elo(. an hash an! memorizes them. %hen she trans$orms the string in a large captcha. %he captcha coul! e picture" soun! message" etc/ +o recei#es the captcha an! chooses a se)uence o$ 10 chars" he calculates the hash then sen!s it to *lice. *lice controls the recei#e! hash then compares (ith her list to o tain the 10 chars selecte! y +o . %hese 10 chars are the key exchange!.
