Alan Conway created DISPATCH-958:

             Summary: Lacking documentation on authorization, authentication 
and SSL.
                 Key: DISPATCH-958
             Project: Qpid Dispatch
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Documentation
    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
            Reporter: Alan Conway

All the configuration attributes related to security are well documented, but 
it's not at all easy to figure out which attributes you need to set in order to 
create basic secure configurations.

Suggest adding a section to chapter 3 of the dispatch book showing how to 
 * Entirely insecure router for trusted network/development work
 * Simple SSL
 * SASL PLAIN+SSL for simple secure authentication.
 * allow-insecure+PLAIN (no SSL) for simple auth in a trusted network/dev env.
 * at least one of SASL's distributed auth mechansims (Kerberos, LDAP)

We don't want to document everything about SASL, but we do need to show all the 
ways it can be used from dispatch  - at least enough so people can look at e.g. 
an LDAP dispatch example and then use SASL/Kerb docs to figure out how to turn 
that into appropriate Kerberos config etc.
