Description of problem:

Minor fix for JDG 6.1 documentation about security using endpoints.

I think there has been some confusion, as noted in bug 818031. We need to:

* Update the docs to reflect the fact that REST has authentication enabled by default, and is exposed on the public interface by default, which is expected.
* Do nothing in the docs for memcache, as it needs to be restricted to the management interface by default.
* Determine whether Hot Rod does indeed have authentication enabled by default - If so, the current docs should be removed. if not, it needs to be restricted to the management interface by default and the current docs can stay in place.
Comment 1 Misha H. Ali 2013-10-03 22:56:35 EDT
Scoped as a one-off bug fix update for the 6.1 Developer Guide.
Comment 3 Misha H. Ali 2013-10-03 23:58:49 EDT

In frozen dev guide[1] for JDG 6.1:

* For REST:
 - Remove topic "9.8.1. Publish REST Endpoints as a Public Interface" since they are already public by default.
 - Note somewhere prominent within the topic "Enable Security for the REST Endpoint" that REST is public as a default.

* For Memcached:
 - do nothing to http://docbuilder.usersys.redhat.com/14115/#Publish_Memcached_Endpoints_as_a_Public_Interface

* For Hot Rod:
 - Remove "11.10.1. Publish Hot Rod Endpoints as a Public Interface" since it is also already public.

DFJ, can you confirm the above are correct for the situation in 6.1?

(Note: None of these changes apply to 6.2, which is being discussed separately)
Comment 4 David Jorm 2013-10-04 02:05:49 EDT
Correct except I think we also need to remove the content for memcached, as it is also public by default.
Comment 5 Misha H. Ali 2013-10-04 02:07:42 EDT
Thanks, David.
