  The term user refers to an individual, group, host, domain, trusted communication channel, network address/port, another netwoik, a remote system (e.g., operations system), or a process (e.g., service or program) that accesses the network, or is accessed by it, including any entity that accesses a network support entity to perform OAM&Prelated tasks. Regardless of their role, users must be required to successfully pass an identification and authentication (I&A) mechanism. For example, I&A would be required for a security or system administrator. For customers, I&A could be required for billing purposes. For some services (e.g.. Emergency Services) a customer may not need to be authenticated by the system.
