Authenticating a Trusted Network

Computers that are part of the trusted SCADA network will now use a shared secret password to authenticate each other. This machine password is configured using the Computer Setup Wizard, and the INI parameter [Client]PartofTrustedNetwork.

If the password has not been configured, and is necessary at runtime due to the INI setting, the servers will become inoperable. An appropriate message will then be recorded in the syslog.
