Authentication means verfying the user is a valid user with username and password.

Authorization is the permissions of a valid user. So once the user is authenticated, his permissions are assigned using authorization so the access over resources is controlled.

Authentication: Verifying the user with correct User Name and Password.

e.g: User Name: abc@gmail.com
Password: ********* .

Authorization: Verifying the permissions of a authentic user. According to the user type, permissions are assigned to the user.

e.g: User Type: Administrator (having all permissions)
User Name: abc@gmail.com
Password: ********* .

NOTE: First Authentication takes place after that Authorization.
