What is AAA?

  • Dark

In the context of cyber security, AAA stands for "Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting." It refers to a set of security protocols that are used to control access to computer systems and networks.

Authentication is the process of verifying the identity of a user, device, or system. It involves identifying the user or device and verifying that it is who or what it claims to be.

Authorization is the process of granting or denying access to a system or resource based on the authenticated identity of the user or device. It involves determining what actions the user or device is allowed to perform, and what resources they are allowed to access.

Accounting is the process of tracking and recording user and device activity within a system. It involves keeping track of what actions are taken, when they are taken, and by whom or what.

AAA protocols are often used in conjunction with other security measures, such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and access controls, to help protect against unauthorized access and other security threats. They are an important part of any cyber security system.
