Security configuration options

Access the Security tab to configure the security level, clear stored passwords, and view/clear known hosts.

The Security tab consists of three sections:


Changes are not applied until Apply is clicked. To discard changes, click Restore.

Security Level

Use the slide to set the security level.


The Passwords section of the Security tab is for password management.

The Manage button allows you to clear one or more stored user/password combinations. Click the Manage button to open the Manage passwords dialog. From this dialog, you can clear selected (or all) passwords stored by the GDC.

The Disable checkbox determines whether a user will be able to store their password and whether a user can silently logged in. By default, it is not selected; users will have the option to save their passwords by selecting the Save Password checkbox on the login form. When selected, the GDC stores the user and password for a specific host and port. The GDC will then attempt to silently log in a user if their credentials were saved and they are coming from the same host and port.

To prevent a user from saving their password, select the Disable check box. When selected, the Save password checkbox will not appear on the Login box and the end user must enter their password at every login attempt. No user will silently be logged in.

Known Hosts

View or remove known hosts.

Click the Manage button to open the Manage known hosts dialog. From this dialog, you can view known host details and remove selected (or all) known hosts.
