Authenticating a password using SpeedScript

As part of the basic, essential security measures for your site, you should do the following:
1. Ensure that a user is, in fact, a valid user who is recognized by the system.
2. Grant the authenticated user access to only the system resources to which the user is assigned, or authorized to use.
These measures are typically referred to as authentication and authorization, respectively. There are several commonly accepted methods to implement authentication and authorization, such as authentication based on username and password (for which a SpeedScript-based example is provided in this section), standard strong authentication, and Web browser to Web server authentication.
