An onboard FTP server protects equipment with integrated user name and password management, making access to these servers more secure.
Whether it’s to perform maintenance, supply a machine with new recipes or load a new function module, direct access to the controller is becoming increasingly important throughout the entire life cycle of production equipment. Developers of automation applications must maintain a high level of security when preparing the functions involved, while also ensuring that they are simple to learn and easy to operate.
User authentication is managed with user names and passwords. Management of user data and assigned rights is integrated in Automation Studio. These data are stored on the runtime system in encrypted form to ensure seamless security. User management for FTP access allows an unlimited number of users to be assigned access rights. At runtime, up to eight different users can access the controller at the same time through FTP.
