Authentication is the process of validating the credentials of the user logging on to an application. Usually, these credentials are a user name and a password.

Authorization is the process of specifying, restricting, and checking data access rights of users on tables and logical views.

Authorization depends on authentication. Before being able to provide or restrict access to certain data (authorization), the identity of the user has to be known and has to be verified (authentication).
