    These are not exactly the same. They maybe similar in the sense that the purpose of using them is for security reasons.

    In JotForm, the Captcha field is a field that you can use to capture human validations/confirmation using a challenge-response test. It asks for a randomize value and you provide the correct value in response. You can find this field in JotForm in power tools group.

    SSL (Secure Socket Layer) is a security technology that provide encryptions on the links between the webserver and the client browser(the internet). Here is an article how SSL work in JotForm.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you have further inquiry.
