I haven't read the whole thread, but this Authentified is a bogus word
in English AFAIK.
There are two security related terms (which are often confused)
- Authenication (authenticated): The process of establishing the
identity of the user.
- Authorization (authorized): The granting of permissions to the user.
e.g. The authenticated engineer is authorized to access this cabinet.
Do the two German ("Authentikation" and "Authentifikation") terms match
these concepts, or could you further describe/define them?
