Security Principles

Basic security consists of four principles: access, authentication, authorization, and accounting.

Access refers to physical access to hardware, or physical or virtual access to software.

Authentication consists of ensuring that users of hardware or software are who they say they are.

Authorization refers to restrictions that limit access to hardware and software.

Accounting refers to software and hardware features used to monitor login activity and maintenance of hardware inventories.
