Authentication is how a user is identified, typically through confidential information such as user name and password. Authentication ensures that users of hardware or software are who they say they are.

  • Set up authentication features, such as a password system, in your platform operating systems to ensure that users are who they say they are.

  • Ensure that your personnel use employee badges properly to enter the computer room.

  • For user accounts: use access control lists where appropriate; set time-outs for extended sessions; set privilege levels for users.
