That doesn't make any sense.

It is only useful to authenticate often enough to catch invalidation
of authentication credentials. A person's identity doesn't change
from millisecond to millisecond! Authentication results should be
cached. Ideally, there is external information available that guides
the caching rules. (For example, public key certificates have such
information in them.)
