11. Security

By default, the Data Flow server is unsecured and runs on an unencrypted HTTP connection. You can secure your REST endpoints, as well as the Data Flow Dashboard by enabling HTTPS and requiring clients to authenticate. More details about securing the REST endpoints and configuring to authenticate against an OAUTH backend (i.e: UAA/SSO running on Cloud Foundry), please review the security section from the core reference guide. The security configurations can be configured in dataflow-server.yml or passed as environment variables through cf set-env commands.
