Consistency of Systems

 

Description:

 

An identity authentication or authorization system must operate consistently for different users, devices and contexts

 

For every request made into an authentication or authorization, not only must the method of processing a request be consistent for the same user, the method of processing must be consistent for different users, devices or contexts that expect a response from the service.

 

For example, if a system requires a username and password to authenticate a user, every request must require that data - the result can of course by different.

 

This will provide a contract between the calling service and the authentication or authorization service.
