I have security concerns as well, but not in buildbot itself.  My  
project is restricted even withinz the company I work for so I need  
the buildbot web server to only be available to certain people.   
HTTPS access would be nice too.  TwistedWeb doesn't seem to have  
support for either HTTPS or authentication so I've been forced to  
"hide" it by putting it on a non-standard port.  Very weak.

I am no networking expert so the suggestions for using a reverse  
proxy are very welcome and I will look into that right away.  Just  
wanted to add my voice to the security concerns.
