UML interaction overview diagram - System authentication

"Authentication ... is the act of confirming the truth of an attribute of a single piece of data (datum) or entity. In contrast with Identification which refers to the act of stating or otherwise indicating a claim purportedly attesting to a person or thing's identity, Authentication is the process of actually confirming that identity. It might involve confirming the identity of a person by validating their identity documents, verifying the validity of a website with a digital certificate, tracing the age of an artifact by carbon dating, or ensuring that a product is what its packaging and labeling claim to be. In other words, Authentication often involves verifying the validity of at least one form of identification." [Authentication. Wikipedia]
