Login controls

specify the conditions users must meet for gaining access. In most cases, access will be permitted only when both a username and password are provided. More complex systems grant or deny access based on the type of computer login, i.e., local, dial-up, remote login program, network, batch, or subprocess. The security system can restrict access based on the type of terminal or remote computer—access will only be granted when the user or program is located at a designated terminal or remote system. Also, access can be defined by time of day and day of the week. As a further precaution, the more complex systems monitor unsuccessful [login]]s, send messages to the system operator and disable accounts when a break-in occurs.[1]
