https://boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki/Weak_account_key
Quote:
Each account has an associated weak account key. Someone who has your weak account key can attach computers to your account, but can't log in to your account or to change it in any way. This is useful if you need to install BOINC on public computers, or if you want to let someone compute on your behalf without giving them access to your account.
OPTION 1

STEP 1
Quote:
To use a weak account key on a given host, find or create the 'account file' for the project. This file has a name of the form account_PROJECT_URL.xml; for example the account file for [email protected] is account_setiathome.berkeley.edu.xml.
STEP 2
Quote:
Create this file if needed. Set its contents to:

Code:

Code:
<account>
    <master_url>PROJECT_URL</master_url>
    <authenticator>WEAK_ACCOUNT_KEY</authenticator>
</account>
OPTION 2

1. Make a batch file with this single line in it:

boinc --attach_project http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org 123456_f5gh67bf54d5dfgthgh12fgh

(Put the weak key you want to crunch for , not 123456_f5gh67bf54d5dfgthgh12fgh )

2. Put this .bat file in your BOINC directory

3. Open the BOINC client, advanced view, and detach from WCG. Close the client.

4. Open the .bat file

5. Open BOINC client with advanced view. Under " account" on "Projects" tab it should show the username
