User Authentication and Authorization Challenges in a Networked Library Environment.
Machovec, George S.
Online Libraries and Microcomputers, v15 n10 p1-6 Oct 1997
Discusses computer user authentication and authorization issues when libraries need to let valid users access databases and information services without making the process too difficult for either party. Common solutions are explained, including filtering, passwords, and kerberos (cryptographic authentication scheme for secure use over public computer networks); and examples of authentication and authorization processes at academic libraries are included.
