We're currently discussing the exact implementation details of  
authentication and authorization on the developer mailing list.  The  
best place to read about the current state of security and validation  
features is probably this blog post:

The "Reader Access" functionality described on the site is still under  
development as far as I know, and isn't available in the current  
source code for testing just yet.  Administrator access and update  
validation is available though, to the extent described in the blog  
post above.
