Local Authentication Subsystem (LASS)
The Local Authentication Subsystem (LASS) provides the infrastructure that enables user authentication independent of the application and the specific authentication mechanism. Password authentication provides only one option, a password, for verification. However, LASS allows you to support sophisticated authentication mechanisms, such as biometrics. In addition, you can use LASS functionality to specify event-based policies to authenticate users.
