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


Declaration of authorization is



<allow users=”Suresh, Sanjay”/>

<deny users=”Ramana, Rakesh”>


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.
