Improved CitectSCADA Security

Security enhancements have been implemented in this release to address known security issues from previous versions and to reduce the possibility of malicious attack. These security enhancements include, improved inter-operability through the introduction of new INI parameters, trusted network authentication, and the addition of assigning roles to CitectSCADA runtime users, as you currently do for Windows users.

Note: The [Privilege]Shutdown parameter is now used to specify the necessary privilege level of a user to perform a shutdown operation triggered by clicking the Close button of the project (default privilege level is 8).
