Authentication in ADPG

Authentication is the process of verifying the identity of a user who wants to establish the connection with the server. The server determines whether a client application or a user that runs the client application is permitted to connect with the specified user name. ADPG uses roles to manage access privileges. In the PostgreSQL terminology, a user is a role with the LOGIN privilege.

PostgreSQL roles are separate from operating system users. A database server can accept remote connections with users who have no local operating system account.

ADPG supports the following authentication methods: trust, password, GSSAPI, SSPI, ident, peer, LDAP, RADIUS, certificate, PAM, and BSD.
