Overview

Function

The KRC Upgrade No-Admin software is an add-on functionality.


KRC Upgrade No-Admin restricts the access rights of the Windows user group
Users with regard to Windows system files and certain resources of the
KUKA System Software. This protects the system from being changed by this
user group.
Due to the access restrictions, KRC Upgrade No-Admin gives improved protection against malicious software (viruses, spyware, etc.). The basic protection must still be ensured by other programs, however (e.g. Ikarus virus
scanner).
The KUKA System Software (KSS), technology packages and all additional
KUKA functions retain their full functionality.

Windows users

During automatic logon, the user is logged on as KUKAUser. KUKAUser has


only user privileges.
KRC Upgrade No-Admin creates the new Windows administrator KUKASystem, which has all access rights to the entire system.
KUKASystem is a local user that, by default, does not have any rights on the
network. If KUKASystem requires rights on the network, these can be assigned. In case of questions, please contact the KUKA Roboter GmbH.

Warning!
It is strongly recommended that the password for the user KUKASystem
should be changed. If the password is not changed, unauthorized persons
could gain access to the entire system with the aid of this documentation.
If the password is changed, the files StartKRC.kec and StartUtil.kec must be
adapted. In case of questions, please contact the KUKA Roboter GmbH.
(>>> 6 "KUKA Service" page 15)
The Windows user groups have nothing to do with the user groups in the
KSS. Both Windows user groups have access to all user groups in the KSS
(subject to entry of the correct password).

protection

KRC Upgrade No-Admin is designed to be used together with the technology


package KUKA.CPC.

The KUKA Utilities in C:\KRC\UTIL can be executed by the Windows user
group Users via the file StartUtil.kec. The KUKA Utilities always run with administrator privileges.
(>>> 5.2 "Executing KUKA Utilities" page 13)
Non-KUKA software:
Non-KUKA software always runs under the access rights of the user that is
currently logged on. It is also possible to start software with administrator privileges in the Windows user group Users.

3. Safety

Safety

It is strongly recommended that the password for the user KUKASystem


should be changed. If the password is not changed, unauthorized persons
could gain access to the entire system with the aid of this documentation.
If the password is changed, the files StartKRC.kec and StartUtil.kec must
be adapted. In case of questions, please contact the KUKA Roboter GmbH. (>>> 6 "KUKA Service" page 15)

KRC Upgrade No-Admin alone does not provide adequate protection


against malicious software.
Due to the access restrictions, KRC Upgrade No-Admin gives improved
protection against malicious software (viruses, spyware, etc.). The basic
protection must still be ensured by other programs, however (e.g. Ikarus
virus scanner).
