A number of protocols used to authenticate users, hosts and processes are described. The three main types of authentication in a distributed computing system-message content authentication, message origin authentication, and general identity authentication-are explained. Authentication exchanges are identified, and paradigms of authentication protocols are presented. Authentication protocol failures are addressed, and an authentication framework is provided. As case studies, two authentication services, Kerberos and SPX, are examined.<>
