2.1 Authentication Services Overview

The Authentication Services protocols include protocols that provide account authentication, authorization, access control, policy enforcement, data-packets usage accounting, and data-packet auditing services between a client and a server.

These protocols can be used to provide:

  • Authentication services substantially similar to how a Windows Server domain controller provides authentication services to Windows clients and users.

  • Windows logon and security subsystems services for Windows clients.

  • Remote administration functionality to support the authentication services listed above.
