Authentication Process
  • The actions involving: a. obtaining an identifier and a personal password from an ADP system user; b. comparing the entered password with the stored, valid password that was issued to, or selected by, the person associated with that identifier; and c. authenticating the identity if the entered password and the stored password are the same. (Note: If the enciphered password is stored, the entered password must be enciphered and compared with the stored ciphertext or the ciphertext must be deciphered and compared with the entered password. ) (FIPS PUB 112;)
