Authorization is a process of allowing or denying resources to particular user or record

 

Declaration of authorization is

 

<authorization>

<allow users=”Suresh, Sanjay”/>

<deny users=”Ramana, Rakesh”>

</authorization>

Sometimes authorization allows the unauthorized persons at that time we will use

<deny users=”?”/>

 

Authentication means

 

Authentication is a process where we identify the credentials of user i.e. username, password and create an identity to mention user as an authenticated.
