Security and Access (13)

Sinolta comes with one default Admin username with a blank password. If you have changed the password and do not remember it, please contact for help.
There is no way that we can extract your password in the field. You will have to send a copy of your project archived file to our support team.

Your password is stored in the Sinolta database. Please contact your system administrator to reset your password for you.
Systems that are set up to connect to an email server allow users to authenticate them via emails and reset their passwords automatically.

Yes, the Sinolta security system allows you to set up your system so specific users can have No Visibility, Read-only and Read/Write access levels for different points in the system.
The security model is controlled through Security Groups. You first have to define the User Group security level and then assign each user to one or multiple User Groups.
At the same time, each point has a user Access level parameter. By default, all users are set up to have Read/Write access level by all users.
Please consult Security Tutorial martial before you start changing your system security configuration.

Sinolta Security model allows you to set up the system for each user to have no visibility, read-only and Read/Write access.
Alarms follow the same security access level as their corresponding point. This means that when a point is configured as a Read-only point to a user, all its corresponding alarms (e.g. Hi, HiHi) are Read-only, meaning that the user can see the alarms but cannot reset or acknowledge the alarms for this point.

Right-click on an HMI screen and note the Security Access level field.
Now go to the database Builder and open the HMI Access branch from the Security section.
User Groups that have the same string used in both HMI Access Object in the database and the HMI screen security access field will have access to the HMI screen.
These fields are left blank to provide full access to all screens by all users.

By default, all users will have access to all prebuilt views.
From the Security branch in the database builder, security prebuilt Views Access Level and enter the….??????

Yes. You must add the Sinolta User Groups to your Domain Server Active Directory database. All users that belong to these User groups in the Domain server Active Directory database will be able to connect to the Sinolta without entering any username and password. Their security access level is controlled by Sinolta user Groups that they are a member of.

Please review the Tutorial materials that are available on the Sinolta support website.

The Sinolta connection over the Internet is one of the most secure interfaces for the following reasons:
The Client is not a web browser, so users can not easily hack into the client code.
A secured interface is based on HTTPS, which is an encrypted interface.
User name and password are transferred as binary data structures that are internally encrypted in addition to the HTTPS encryption. So even if someone manages to decrypt an HTTPS encryption, they still need to decrypt and reverse engineer the encrypted binary data.
All subsequent communication exchanges are also double encrypted binary dynamic data objects that are managed by a session management algorithm that is encrypted as well.

All system login activity is in Sinolta. From Charts application, open the Historical Data Extraction from the file menu options.
Select Audit Trail (or security) and then select the period that you are interested in.
This process can also be accessed from Automation using the Sinolta automation Database query function block.

The System Manager can be used to see what users are currently connected to the project. This can be accessed on the Security Tab.
From the security system, Sinolta can be set up for Intrusion detection. You can set up the system to generate an alarm when a login attempt is made too frequently over a specified period of time (example, 3 or more failed attempts in 1 minute).
The system can generate an alarm for the operators to see and you can also set up logic to send an email when this situation occurs.

The automation query function block can periodically check for the history of all login attempts and email a connection activity report.

In addition to the Remember User and Remember password settings available on all the login screens , unique views can be set up to allow direct access without requiring user logins.
Create an Express view from Real-time viewer and specify to login with the current credentials. When this type of view is opened, the user will not need to login..
