Subject Re: SOLR 4.0 / Jetty Security Set Up
Date Fri, 07 Sep 2012 06:50:58 GMT

I think that should be described differently...
You need to set-up protected access for some paths.
/update is one of them.
And you could make this protected at the jetty level or using Apache proxies and rewrites.

Probably /select should be kept open but you need to evaluate if that can get you in DoS attacks
if there are too big selects. If that is the case, you're left to programme an interface all
by yourself which limits and fetches from solr, or which lives inside solr (a query component)
and throws if things are too big.
