challenge-response authentication

   A method of authentication used by Microsoft Windows 2000 and other operating systems.
   When a user contacts a server, the server responds with a challenge, upon which the user then performs a cryptographic operation and returns the result to the server. The server then performs the same operation, and if the two results are the same, the user is considered authentic.
