Summary:

Sometimes it is necessary to recover a corrupted security.cfg file or add sections to the file that have been removed or have disappeared from the file for some unknown reason. The security.cfg file contains all security data: users, passwords, ACLs and probe permissions. All hubs have a security.cfg file and all hubs sync to the highest version number.  You can see this version number at the top of your security.cfg. It is sometimes necessary, in the event of corruption, to recover a security.cfg file.  It is also a best practice back this file up regularly. If you have a backup of your security.cfg file, you can use this procedure to recover a corrupt security.cfg for your hub.
