Business Terms and Jargon Explained

What is Password

A secret string which is known only to the user and the system which the user can enter. It is used for identification and authentication purposes. The strength of a password (and thus the level of security it provides) is directly related to its length and how easy it would be for an attacker to guess it.

Usernames/Passwords should never be disclosed or shared as this would mean there is no accountability within the system. A variant is a PIN which is normally numeric only and is used in conjunction with an authentication token (e.g. a smart card).
