User account

An electronic record that represents a single computer system or application user's identity. This identity includes a unique account identifier (such as a user name) and one or more, shared secrets (such as passwords, fingerprints, digital signatures, and so on) that can be used during a user authentication operation to validate that the user account can only be used as proof of identity by the user it represents.
