    The getty process does nothing until a terminal is connected to the port.When the terminal gets connected getty process sends the signal of login to the terminal and waits for the feedback. After the userid is types, getty process starts a new process called login and after password is verified the control is transferred to the shell.

    Getty is a login process that manages login sessions.It is just a process waiting for some form of communications input on the port to which it has been assigned to.
