Use of indistinguishable response time


Response time of authentication probes should be indistinguishable whether an user exists or not.


This requirement aims to ensure that, regardless of the input or conditions, the response time of a system remains indistinguishable. By carefully measuring response times, an attacker may infer details about the internal operations of a system, and maybe exposing sensitive information.
