PAP

Password Authentication Protocol

The Password Authentication Protocol allows PPP (Point to Point Protocol) peers to authenticate one another. The remote device attempting to connect to the local device is required to send an authentication request. PAP does not itself prevent unauthorized access but merely identifies the remote end.
