Issue description
This feature request is to address a great miss in the current state of JPPF. Currently no access control is available in JPPF, and must be implemented externally (for instance routing traffic via ssh and using public/private key authentication).

There are 2 sorts of access control we are considering:
  • component level: can a client or node connect to a server, and do any restrictions apply? this would have to be part of the connection handshake
  • user level: authentication and permissions. This may be implemented as a facility in the job SLA, and should be consistent with any access control for the JMX-based APIs.
