WebShare Server and Webshare 2Go


FARO® Knowledge Base

Security Level Definitions for FARO Webshare

FARO Webshare 4.8 & 4.9 uses the standard Windows user management and therefore it is as secure as your Windows operating system. Please refer to the Webshare user manual for current info.


2.3.1. Public Projects

If you put your projects into the “PublicProjects” folder, they will be visible via

WebShare for everyone without the need to log in.

If a user connects to the SCENE WebShare Server, the server will initially not

recognize the user nor will it know about the user name or password. This is true evenm when the user connects to a locally installed server. The user will be considered anonymous until a login is successfully performed. Until this point only public projects will be visible/accessible in the projects overview.

If you want to use public access to some or all of your WebShare projects, simply put these projects into the “PublicProjects” folder. All projects inside this folder will be accessible to all anonymous as well as to registered users.


2.3.2. Projects with Restricted Access

Unlike public projects, restricted projects will not show up in the projects overview for any user without sufficient access rights and will not be accessible via WebShare for anonymous users.


All projects inside the “Projects” folder will only be visible to registered users with appropriate access rights. The actual visibility and accessibility is controlled by the standard Windows user management. Therefore, users have to login into SCENE WebShare with their Windows login information first before they can access any of the data inside the “Projects” folder. You can even select to have the panorma views public, but the actual scan data restricted. Simply set the user access rights accordingly. Please see chapter 2.4 for more information.


An Internet browser can access the projects only within the WebShare application and its user management. The projects cannot be explored by uncontrolled browser access


2.5. Security Advice

Attention! Currently the user names and passwords are not transferred on a secure connection!


We therefore recommend not to use your existing user accounts, but to create new ones, which are only used within the WebShare data.
