Is "authentification" even a real word?

It is amazing how the regular misuse of common words in the English language (and probably other languages too), ultimately leads to corruption of the original word.

A good example of this that I often come across, is the word "authentification".
"Authentification" is not a real English word, people.

The word that should be used instead, is in fact "authentication".
"Authentification" is the French equivalent of "authentication".

So please, ISP's, IT people, techno geeks and other English-breaking-people, stop using the word "authentification", unless you are in fact speaking French... :)
