Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is an homograph?

Homographs are words which visually are normal, but which use unusual characters as letters, not interpreted as letters by machines.

Appeared with computer science, homography uses the fact that seemingly similar characters are interchangeable and understandable to a human but not to a computer.

One of the first uses is related to the leet speak in which the characters 0, 1 or 5 are used to represent the letters O, I or S respectively.

Example: DC0DE (A zero 0 instead of the O) is a homoglyph.

In practice, Unicode characters allow words to be written with letters from foreign alphabets, strongly resembling the usual Latin letters of the alphabet.

How to use an Homograph?

Homographs can be used to fool computer robots, for example in captchas or for SEO. Using an homograph cancel indexation of a given word, as visually for a human there is no difference, it is visually close or identical for a human, therefore it can be useful to avoid indexation, such as on Facebook.

It is also a technique used by spammers to pass email filters based on keywords.

How to verify an Homograph?

Make a Copy/Paste in a search engine like Google. Without homograph: dCode here (link) (lots of results) and with homograph: ԁϹоԁе here (link) (only one result: this page)

What is the difference between Homograph and Homoglyph?

Homoglyph is only one character, an homograph is a word made of some homoglyphs.

What is IDN homograph attack?

The internationalized domain name (IDN) homograph attack is a technique used by malicious people to impersonate a website.

With the internationalization of domain names, it is now possible to register an address with homoglyphs like ԁcоԁе.fr (and therefore create a similar or different website)
