Re: Good or bad bots?
@Dr. T: Not really. There are security software solutions and analytics that detect what kind of bot a bot is -- and whether it is a bad bot or a so-called "good" bot.

Re: White Bot, Black Bot, Good Bot, Bad Bot
@Dr. T: Maybe you and I have different ideas of what kinds of bots we want to allow. I have no intention of letting marketers' bots in.

Whitelisting, in any case, goes to specific bots/APIs/etc. -- as opposed to general types.

DevOPs Security?
 

"they don't integrate security into continuous application delivery?"

I do not know what they do then, are they delivering and deploying over the top?

I agree, the question is how we applied that analogy to bots technologies.

Re: White Bot, Black Bot, Good Bot, Bad Bot
Are you a good bot or a bad bot?

This is a good idea, all the bots have to prove that they are good bots first.

"Whitelist"

Whitelist  would be a god option to keep. It may be a useful new bot such as delivering you the best cyber Monday deal. You want to allow that.

Good or bad bots?
 

Good or bad bots? You would not know that until but executed so it is a little bit of a luck.
