Authentication for Client/Server Applications

Previous Next

In a client/server application, authentication consists of a password check each time the application is started. Each client computer starts its own Rules Engine, and has a private connection to the application database.

The password is checked as part of the log on process to the application database: the storage of user passwords and the validation of passwords is actually handled by the database software.

As a consequence, user and password management is a DBA task in a client/server environment.
