[wildfly-dev] Supporting FIPS in domain mode

Darran's the expert on this, but my initial naive question is whether 
this can be split into two logical use cases:

1) Where we know TLS is not going to be used on the HC<->server connection.

2) Where we don't know that.

I ask because if case 2 is harder or requires changes that don't belong 
in a micro release (e.g. management model changes) perhaps we can first 
deal with case 1. My impression from the initial bug report is that 
SSL/TLS was not configured on the host's management interfaces.
