Describe the issue

Setup and suggestions related to tls etcd client-server authentication (between
etcd and tendrl components) is not described in installation guide.

To enable etcd client server tls based authentication, one needs to create and 
distribute tls cert files himself, and then configure tendrl-ansible via ansible
variables accordingly.

Authentication based on tls is not configured by tendrl-ansible by default. If
unconfigured, etcd will be deployed without any authentication, allowing anyone
to access it.

Comment 2 Martin Bukatovic 2017-11-25 18:40:31 UTC
Upstream documentation

Installation guide[1] notes:

> To run secure ETCD (SSL/TLS based client server encryption and auth), please
> refer to:
> Note: this is covered by tendrl-ansible, but it's disabled by default, as the
> issuing and deployment of tls certificates on all machines is out of scope of
> tendrl-ansible and you need to do it yourself first.

tendrl-ansible then describes ansible variables related to tls auth in readme
of tendrl-server role[2], see description of etcd_tls_client_auth,
etcd_cert_file, etcd_key_file, etcd_trusted_ca_file variables.

Looks ok. Checked content with current implementation and also all issues from gdoc are fixed.
