    Assignee: Ben Hardesty

> Lacking documentation on authorization, authentication and SSL.

>                 Key: DISPATCH-958
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DISPATCH-958
>             Project: Qpid Dispatch
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Documentation
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.1
>            Reporter: Alan Conway
>            Assignee: Ben Hardesty
>            Priority: Major
>
> 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 
> configure:
>  * 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.
