BOT Detection

Mitigating identity thefts and fraud risks is the top priority of modern enteprises. Today, authentication solutions need to be in-built with automatic fraud detection and prevention capabilities to deliver highly secure and reliable customer experiences.

Through adaptive and analytics-driven technologies, cidaas makes your applications smarter and more capable over time to defend against increasingly sophisticated identity theft and impersonation attacks.

BOT attacks and prevention by CAPTCHA is an integral function of cidaas' comprehensive Fraud Detection System for Registration, Login and Identity management. The BOT Detection advanced setting on cidaas helps protect user identities gainst brute force attacks through an extra layer of authentication, in addition to, the Blocking Mechanism.

A brute force attack is one of the most common threats faced by businesses where attackers make multiple fraudulent attempts to login to an account by trying various combinations of usernames and passwords on the off chance one of them might work.

BOT detection mitigates scripted attacks by detecting when a request is likely to be coming from a BOT. These types of attacks are sometimes called credential stuffing attacks or list validation attacks. It provides protection against certain attacks to add very little friction to legitimate users. When such an attack is detected, it displays a CAPTCHA step in the login experience to eliminate BOT and scripted traffic.

The following section describes how you can implement BOT Detection using CAPTCHA for customer apps through admin dashboard configuration.

This Advanced Settings option on cidaas core lets you Enable or Disable BOT Detection (verifying if the user is human or a robot) on the login or registration page of your application and set the type of CAPTCHA BOT.
