We need a way to secure the connection between our Heapster sink and Hawkular Metrics. As part of this we need to be able to encrypt the connection and setup some sort of authentication mechanism.
We could either do something like:
1) certificate based authentication. Here Hawkular Metrics would always trust what is coming in from Heapster based on the certificate.
2) token based authentication. Here Heapster would send a token which Hawkular Metrics would verify against the OpenShift oauth server.This would act in the same way that the console would access Hawkular Metrics.
