1. Authentication is the process by which the system requires you to provide informa-
tion before it allows you to access a specific account. An example is entering a name
and password while connecting to an Apple file server. Authorization refers to the
process by which permissions are used to regulate a user’s access to specific resources,
such as files and share points, once the user has been successfully authenticated.
2. User accounts provide basic access to a computer or server, while administrator
accounts allow a person to administer the machine. On Mac OS X, the administrator
account is typically used for changing settings or adding new software. On Mac OS X
Server, the administrator account is typically used for changing settings on the server
machine itself, usually through Server Admin or Workgroup Manager.
3. Workgroup Manager is used to configure users and groups, and Server Admin is used
to manage share points on Mac OS X Server. Get Info is used to change permissions
on Mac OS X.
