Authentication vs Identification

Noted. For some reason, there's been an unusually large amount of deep thinking around identity the last few days. Stephen Downes wrote an article on Authentication and Identification (http://www.downes.ca/cgi-bin/website/view.cgi?dbs=Article&key=1115168586). I added his definitions of authentication and identification to my glossary.

Update (May 6, 2005):
o Johannes Ernst responded with Resistance is useless: there is no point in authentication systems (according to Stephen Downes).
o Xageroth Sekarius added: Stephen's mIDm.
