Authentication Events

Please introduce authentication events type.
It should log both successful and failed authentication events (and the RC /failure reason).

Failed authentication events for reasons similar to the associated RFE with id 144377

Successful authentication events because if we find an event linked to a user requiring investigation , it helps to understand when was the exact time of last authentication to keep full record of the events , relate to other logs from other devices such as networks..etc.
