No. How can you authorize somebody without beeing sure who that user is.
Only authentication provides that information. So you need authentication
and authorization.

Hello MS.

I do not agree to your response.

Authorization is a process where information in a request is evaluated.
This information may be used to validate against information about the
user that was obtained from file, database, or LDAP directory.

Authorization happens before authentication

and does not involve the checking of a password. We can use various logic
and comparisons to determine if a user is authorized to connect to a
network. i look forward be hear back....

Thanks / Regards
