Description of problem:
it would be nice if qemu would support TLS for chardev sockets, so connection to VM's serial port via network would be encrypted. this should be possible for both client and server modes. spice option supports tls so code could be re-used probably.
there should be also optional possibility to define password for such connection (like for spice).
why? access to VM's serial console without ssh to host itself.
client mode could be used to "attach" consoles to central console server.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. make chardev socket to be connected via encrypted mode
should be possible
i suppose this would also need libvirt part when this is accepted.
This support was added to QEMU 2.6 via this commit

Could you please provide QE some use cases about this bug in order to verify this bug ? Thanks in advance.
I'll just mark this bug a dup of 1300773 since it has more info, and test cases.
