AntiPolygraph.org is not hosted on a LeaseWeb virtual private server in Haarlem, The Netherlands. Our data resides on a server in the Amsterdam AMS-01 Data Center.

We moved because our previous web hosting company in Switzerland began blocking visitors using the Tor network for anonymity and requiring them to complete CAPTCHAs in order to access the site. This is not acceptable.

We now set our own firewall rules, and those using the Tor network (which we recommend) or a VPN should now have no difficulty accessing the site.

The AntiPolygraph.org mailing list, which has remained largely inactive, will be discontinued following our planned server migration.

To resolve the problem of Tor network blocking by our webhosting company, AntiPolygraph.org will be moving to a virtual private server that will enable us to set our own firewall rules. During the migration, the message board will be placed in maintenance mode. We anticipate that downtime will be brief.

More from the ODNI on efforts to invent a way to accurately assess credibility -

The IARPA CASE Challenge team recently held a Q&A session where they addressed solver questions, provided clarity on the scope of the project, and reviewed the prizes. Program Manager, Alexis Jeannotte, dives deep into the world of credibility assessment and the need for this research.


I've also attached Ms Jeannotte's slides.

diann, please see Mr. Mangan's last post above.

It's unconscionably abusive to use polygraph "results" by themselves to punish an otherwise innocent individual. 

Subjecting an individual with emotional, psychological or mental disabilities to the stressors associated with repeated polygraph interrogations is irresponsible.

My brother is suffering from Tardidysconesia and has failed two polygraphs because of his nervous condition.  He is on lifetime probation, has given the Polygrapher the infor, as well as the Probation Dept. the Drs. evaluation.  The PO stated he didn't have to take on, however, has scheduled him in a few weeks.
They have continued to harass him and have subjected him to strict curfews..cannot even walk his dog due to him not passing the Polygraphs.  Have you heard of this condition causing this issue. Thank you Cry

There is no standardized polygraph technique, or question list, used by all sheriff’s offices across the United States. However, the probable-lie technique is the most commonly used one, and the questions asked will probably be similar to those asked on the LAPD pre-employment polygraph:

Good Morning All,

I am new to this site, I have read TLBTLD and believe I have a decent understanding of the procedure and questions.  Does anybody have any information about the Sheriff's question list, aka is it probable-lie, directed-lie, or irrelevant?

As I noted above, polygraph "testing" has not been proven to reliably detect lies at better than chance levels of accuracy in people without a serious medical condition, let alone those who do.

It's certainly possible that your anxiety contributed to your failing the polygraph, but trying to determine why one failed an invalid procedure such as a polygraph "test" is akin to trying to determine why a coin toss came out heads instead of tails.

I suffer from severe depression,  ptsd,  generalized anxiety and so severe of social anxiety disorder i cant leave my home without having a attack.  I am taking zoloft hydroxine and remeron to treat.  I just recently had a polygraph dont one me.  I failed.  I only had 3 hours of sleep and was rushed to do it.  I was also offered a red bull before my test i did not take it.  My attack last from hours to days.  Could my severe social anxiety have caused me to fail. Since i was all the way across the country when the test was administratered.
