This depends on the context. For domain socket connections on supported
OS's it is secure and is one of the best ways to do authentication.

For internet connections, you need to be able to trust the connecting host
and the network over which packets travel. In a lot of situations you
may not have enough trust and/or need to justify using ident, but in
some situations it can be used.
