Footnote 1

For purposes of these Guidelines, authentication is generally the process used to confirm the identity of a person or to prove the integrity of specific information. More specifically, in the case of a message, authentication involves determining its source and providing assurance that the message has not been modified or replaced in transit. See Guideline 28 (authentication).
