Good job guys!

Answer:

The fight between Seraph and Neo in The Matrix: Reloaded is a personification version CHAP. Captchas, are one of the most widely used CHAP based technologies.

    Seraph from the Matrix was supposed to be a personification of a challenge-capture authentication, a la captchas.

    The fight between Neo and Seraph in Matrix Reloaded is of the challenge-response sort, just like Captchas are; a reverse Turing test

    Challenge-response authentication?

    Seraph vs: anyone seeking the Oracle (such as Neo).
    and
    Captcha vs:… You.

    Seraph is a CHAP (Challenge-handshake authentication protocol), captchas both authenticate users (although I guess a captcha checks whether someone is human – guess you can call that authentication too).

    Captchas belong to a broad class of problems called ‘Challenge response authentication’, where the user is posed with a crypto/ non-crypto task and has to figure out the solution to be authenticated.

    Neo: User
    Seraph: the ‘captcha’ guarding the oracle.


  7. Inglourious

    variations of Turing test?
    In the movie Matrix, Seraph(Pic 1), Oracle’s guardian, has a fight to test if Neo is the One
    CAPTCHA – Completely automated public turing test to tell computers and humans apart

    Seraph from The Matrix is a form of Challenge-response authentication. As is reCaptcha.
