Authentification is not a word

Whether one is referring to...

authentication - the validation of credentials (i.e., "Yes, you are who you claim to be")
authorization - the validation of whether access should be granted based on that identity (based on role, group membership, policy, ACL, etc.) (i.e., "Yes, that user is allowed to access that resource")

...the word "authentiFIcation" never comes into play... nor authentify, authentificated, etc.

Identification / identify is a valid word, mind you.

Just saying...
