Authentication

Definition:
The process of determining whether the individual signing in under a specific user name actually has an account with permissions to perform specific actions.

Authentication can be as simple as providing a user name and password, but especially in high dollar e-commerce settings, authentication is usually done in conjunction with access across secure channels and sometimes alternative authentication mechanisms (from thumb prints to retinal scans).
