AAA (authenticiation, authorization and accounting) have been
traditionally seperated conceptually for various reasons. I have
always considered it a big source of confusion that PAM combines the
first two As (and under the name of "authentication" alone, which is
just plain wrong), but of course, YMMV. Some people like that
integration, it seems.
