A temporary authorization is a purchase that you have approved, but where the money has not yet been drawn from your account. It is similar to a deposit, but where the deposit is temporary.
An example of a temporary authorization is when you rent a car. The company often gets a temporary authorization to draw money spent on toll rings or to cover gasoline that you have spent without refilling the tank. Another example is if you are at a hotel and the hotel reserves an amount on your credit card for purchases in the mini bar. If you deliver the car with a full tank or do not drink from the minibar, the temporary authorization will expire, and the transaction will not be completed.
