There is no simple answer to that. I assume that you talk about frontend 
login. For such a login TYPO3 CMS uses authentication services. These 
are called in order of priority and each service can tell TYPO3 that the 
user is authenticated, or the user is not authenticated but another 
service can try, or the user is not authenticated and no other service 
should try.


Contains a lot of information about services. There are a couple of 
authentication services in TER which you can use as example to create 
your own.

If this was not what you were looking for, please explain what you want 
to achieve. You will probably be pointed in the right direction.
