Official Mirror:
The (so called) _"Security Images"_ are so popular. Most internet software use these in their registration screens to block robot programs (which may register tons of fake member accounts). Security images are basicaly, graphical *CAPTCHA*s (*C*ompletely *A*utomated *P*ublic *T*uring Test to Tell *C*omputers and *H*umans *A*part). This module gives you a basic interface to create such an image. The final output is the actual graphic data, the mime type of the graphic and the created random string. The module also has some _"styles"_ that are used to create the background (or foreground) of the image. If you are an 'Authen::Captcha' user, see the GD::SecurityImage::AC manpage for migration from 'Authen::Captcha' to 'GD::SecurityImage'. This module is *just an image generator*. Not a _captcha handler_. The validation of the generated graphic is left to your programming taste. But there are some _captcha handlers_ for several Perl FrameWorks. If you are an user of one of these frameworks, see the /"GD::SecurityImage Implementations" manpage in the /"SEE ALSO" manpage section for information.
