Computing Dictionary
  1. 1. An object-oriented deductive language and database system integrating logic programming and inheritance.

    ["LOGIN: A Logic Programming Language with Built-In Inheritance", H. Ait-Kaci et al, J Logic Programming 3(3):185-215 (1986)].

  2. (Or "log in", "log on", "logon") To start a session with a system, usually by giving a user name and password as a means of user authentication. The term is also used to mean the ability to access a service (also called an account), e.g. "Have you been given a login yet?"

    "Log in/on" is occasionally misused to refer to starting a session where no authorisation is involved, or to access where there is no session involved. E.g. "Log on to our web site!"

    "login" is also the unix program which reads and verifies a user's user name and password and starts an interactive session.
