Securing Projects

CitectSCADA projects represent a considerable investment. Once a commissioned project has been delivered, it usually needs to remain in the delivered state until modifications are performed by an authorized person. In order to help protect projects from modification by unauthorized personnel, CitectSCADA allows projects to be secured by an administrator as "read-only."

For large applications, or applications where access to certain processes or machinery needs to be restricted, you can build security into your system. You can then restrict access to commands that you do not want to be available to evry one of your operators; for example, commands that operate specialized machinery, acknowledge critical alarms, or print sensitive reports. There are 2 options available to you to configure security for your system.

These options are to use CitectSCADA native security or CitectSCADA integrated with Windows Security .
