Am I correct that if one has not specified a named authentication list(login authentication ... under line configuration), authorization list(authorization .. under line configuration) or accounting list(accounting commands 15 .. under line configuration) then the default authentication/authorization/accounting list on all lines is named default?

the default authentication/authorization/accounting list on all lines is named default?

Yes, 100% correct; quoting Cisco's docs...

  • Authentication: The default method list is automatically applied to all interfaces except those that have a named method list explicitly defined.
  • Authorization: Once defined, method lists must be applied to specific lines or interfaces before any of the defined methods are performed. The only exception is the default method list (which is named "default"). If the aaa authorization command for a particular authorization type is issued without a named method list specified, the default method list is automatically applied to all interfaces or lines except those that have a named method list explicitly defined.
  • Accounting: Named accounting method lists allow particular security protocol to be designated and used on specific lines or interfaces for accounting services. The only exception is the default method list (which is named "default"). The default method list is automatically applied to all interfaces except those that have a named method list explicitly defined.
