Authentication is the process of verifying the identity of the user before he gains access to the application. The process consists of collection of user credentials (such as User Id and Password) and comparing them with pre-stored values.

Following three general authentication methods are supported by Siebel:

1) Database Authentication
2) Directory Server Authentication
3) Web Single Sign-On

Different type of authentication are supported by Siebel - LDAP, ADSI and DB Authentication. LDAP authentication picks up and verifies the user credentials from respective LDAP Server as mentioned in Security Profile, ADSI is active directory based verification system, similar to how typically desktop logins are configured, DB authentication (although not recommended apart from system users) matches the keyed in credentials with those stored in Database.
