Benefits of authentication
Typical authentication is carried out by using user names and passwords. There are many more authentication methods like iris scan, finger print authentication, and still others which use electronic evidences like digital audio recordings; video recordings analog etc. In a strong authentication method, it eliminates the need to enter a username and password. But it also provides a higher level of security access to applications. If a hacker penetrates the authentication server, the user’s secrets might not be stolen. This is the main benefit of authentication.
Consequences of authentication failure
The authentication provides a way to identify the user. When user enters a valid user name and valid password, access is granted. It is mainly based on each user having a unique set of criteria for gaining access. The server compares the credentials of user’s authentication with other user credentials stored in a database. If it matches, the user is granted access to the network. Authentication fails if the credentials are different and hence network access is denied. So the server refuses connection request. The authentication problem denies a user access to the system.
Tips to resolve authentication failure
For resolving the authentication failure there are several methods. The most common one is resetting the password. If you forget the user account password you could log in by using administrator account. In case if you like to change / reset the password, you could go to the ‘Start’ menu and select ‘Control panel’ and select ‘User accounts’. In case of unlocking the e-mail or Internet password, you need to contact the Internet Service Provider.
