Abstract:

This paper contains summary descriptions and analysis of authentication devices, procedures, and technologies. Also included are performance comparisons, relative costs, and current areas of research and development. Special emphasis and study is placed on passwords, card systems, and identity verification devices since they are the primary instruments used to provide identification in access control schemes. Finally, recommendations are made for authentication procedures to be used in the Navy Supply System to help alleviate both current and potential problems related to user identification. This report was prepared under contract N00173-78-C-0455, Task No. 10 for the Navy Ship Research and Development Center NSRDC for use in the Navy Supply environment. Author
