A backdoor is a method, often secret, of bypassing normal authentication in a product, computer system, cryptosystem or algorithm etc. Backdoors are often used for securing unauthorized remote access to a computer, or obtaining access to plaintext in cryptographic systems.

A backdoor may take the form of a hidden part of a program, a separate program (e.g. Back Orifice may subvert the system through a rootkit), or may be a hardware feature. Although normally surreptitiously installed, in some cases backdoors are deliberate and widely known, and may have somewhat legitimate uses such as the manufacturer having a way to deal with users losing passwords.
