Authentication

Authentication

Authentication is a method enabling a computer system to verify the legitimacy of an access request before authorizing it. With authentication, a user can prove his or her identity and access software, for example. We recommend the use of strong authentication, i.e. the use of two authentication factors (password/authentication card/Fido key/biometrics) to log in.
