Managing User Authentication
Authentication is the process of verifying a user’s identity to ensure that the individual really is who he or she
claims to be. (Authentication differs from authorization: it verifies identity, while authorization specifies access
rights.) This section describes how to reference external authentication servers.
To manage user authentication, you must first define one or more external authentication servers in AMC, and
then set up realms that reference those authentication servers. These are the realms that users will log in to. For
information on realms, see Using Realms and Communities. You can also configure a local authentication
repository on the appliance for testing, as described in Configuring Local User Storage.
