(1) (Password Authentication Protocol) An access control protocol for dialing into a network that provides only basic functionality. When the client logs onto the network, the network access server (NAS) requests the username and password from the client and sends it to the authentication server for verification. Since the password is sent over the line unencrypted from the client, it provides password checking, but is not secure from eavesdropping. See CHAP, EAP and PPP.

A commonly used mechanism for password protection in support of remote users attempting to log on to a Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) server.While PAP is easy to use, passwords typically are sent to the remote access server (RAS) in plain text (i.e., in the clear, or unencrypted). PAP demands the user's login name and password, and continues to do so until they both are supplied correctly. A hacker who knows the login name can use password-guessing programs to keep trying, in hopes that he can hit on the right combination and gain access. See also CHAP, hacker, in the clear, PPP, and RAS.
