    A connection made using Windows Authentication is sometimes called a trusted connection, because SQL Server trusts the credentials provided by Windows. + By using Windows Authentication, Windows groups can be created at the domain level, and a login can be created on SQL Server for the entire group.During setup, you must select an authentication mode for the Database Engine. There are two possible modes: Windows Authentication mode and mixed mode. Windows Authentication mode enables Windows Authentication and disables SQL Server Authentication. Mixed mode enables both Windows Authentication and SQL Server Authentication. Windows Authentication is always available and cannot be disabled.

    Authentication means a process of identifying a user or a person based on their username and password. In the same way, SQL Server also authenticates their users by their credentials.

    In Windows Authentication mode, a user is validated by setting a session cookie that contains an MSCSAuth ticket. No expiration date is specified for the cookie, and the cookie is deleted after the session expires. An MSCSAuth ticket contains a user ID, the last login time, and a time window specifying how long the ticket is valid after the last login time. A validated user does not automatically have access to a requested URL. The credentials of the user, once validated, are checked against the access rights of the URL that are maintained through access control lists (ACLs).
