The security issue is critical. If a JGroups channel allows access to
the management layer, that channel is equivalent to any of our other

plain-text authentication mechanisms, plus the "local" mechanisms. The
credentials provided by the user would need to propagate.

I have put together a document describing in overview what the purpose
of the subsystem is and what it might look iike. I am also in the
process of building a working version of the subsystem, as a kind of
proof of concept.
For anyone interested, please have a look at the design document:
Any feedback is appreciated.
