No, it's not - at least not from the "outside".

As you could see even from your conf file (which is a modified version
of the default one) the default is "allow everyone to login from the
this machine using unix domain sockets, IPv4 or IPv6 and _do not_
require a password". Now, the next lines are added by your DB
administrators and are specific to your configuration.

And the next line is relevant to you. It still says you need to supply
a password.

So, when you do supply a password, what is the error message? And
could you look in the server's logs and see what's the error message
there?

Also, when replying, please include the mailing list ("Reply All") so
