Explanation

The act of confirming that someone is who she claims to be or something is what it claims to be. Typically this is done using authentication factors, pieces of information that only the claimant knows (e.g., a password or cipher-key), or unique attributes of the claimant (e.g., a fingerprint or voice print).
