    Description

      To avoid the problem we currently have of sending plain text or weakly encrypted passwords from Dali clients to Dali when authenticating access to files/workunits.

      We should add the ability for Dali clients/Dali to support securely connectivity and a Dali configuration only to only accept secure connections.

      Ideally the SSL connectivity would be implemented such that components could switch to using it relatively seamlessly, e.g. a implementation of ISocket.
      In fact we already have ISecureSocket which is a derivative, however it is only partially implemented.

      For Dali connectivity, MP would need to support SSL also.
