Many access control systems rely upon password-based mechanisms to implement "something you know" security. One of the common applications of password security is to secure virtual private networks and other remote access technologies. In this video, you learn how password authentication works, including the CHAP and PAP protocols.

The client simply transmits the user name…and password to the server, and the server validates…the password.…That's about as simple as it gets,…and successfully implements password authentication.…But there's one major flaw to this protocol.…PAP does not use any encryption to protect…this communication.…Anyone able to eavesdrop on the connection…can read the user name and password right off the network.…For this reason, PAP should not be used…except under circumstances where the transmission…
