Class Overview

A specialisation of CaptchaAuthenticationException, thrown to indicate the user has entered their password incorrectly too many times in succession and is required to solve a CAPTCHA before they will be allowed to login again. This exception is also thrown if a CAPTCHA is required but was not provided.

To prevent brute force attempts to guess a user's password, the system can be configured to require a CAPTCHA after a set number of failed authentication attempts. Administrators can set the number of failed attempts allowed before a user's account will be locked.
