Authentication Authentication is any process by which a system verifies the identity of a user who wishes to access the system. Because access control is typically based on the identity of the user who requests access to a resource, authentication is essential to effective security.What is bidirectional authentication?
In bidirectional authentication, the initiator also gets a chance to authenticate the target (no rogue initiators AND no rogue targets). In this case, the target also configures an outgoing CHAP name and CHAP secret.
