This paper will describe new approaches for creation of multi-level user authentication protocols, using hybrid verification CAPTCHA codes. Proposed codes will define a new subclass of cognitive CAPTCHA, which require special skills and knowledge for proper user authentication. Such authentication procedure can be oriented especially to provide access for trusted group of experts, who represent particular expertise areas, and based of theirs perception abilities and knowledge. For presented authentication protocols possible examples of applications will be presented and security features will be described.
