Definition Edit

Static authentication reuses a specific authenticator (e.g., static password). This type of authentication only provides protection against attacks in which an imposter cannot obtain the authenticator. The strength of the authentication process is highly dependent on the difficulty of guessing or decrypting the authenticator values and therefore how well they are protected in transit and while stored on the system.[1]
