11.10.1. Secure the Management Interfaces

A common development scenario is to run JBoss EAP 6 with no security on the management interfaces to allow rapid configuration changes.

Additionally, the default silent local authentication mode allows local clients (on the server machine) to connect to the Management CLI without requiring a username or password. This is a convenience for local users and Management CLI scripts. To disable this, refer to Section 11.8.6, “Remove Silent Authentication from the Default Security Realm”.
