> This is a best-practice security enhancement. 
> VNC port without password can be restricted to CPVM IP addresses or the management network.
That is what has been recommended so far, with protection out of band of CloudStack.
>  With this enhancement CloudStack will be capable of using a password to access VNC services
on the KVM host. Then there would less need to protect the management network out-of-band
.
