Heat scaling - are the scale up and down URLs authenticated?

When I use the standard template from github, two URLs are generated, one for up and one for down-scaling the stack. I can issue a POST call to each to trigger the scaling.

My question is, can those URLs be secured somehow, or can anyone just trigger them if they know the URL?

Everything in Openstack can be configured to use ssl:

Take a look at the sample heat.conf : heat.conf


# Options defined in heat.common.config

# Type of endpoint in Identity service catalog to use for
# communication with the OpenStack service. (string value)

# Optional CA cert file to use in SSL connections. (string
# value)

# Optional PEM-formatted certificate chain file. (string
# value)

# Optional PEM-formatted file that contains the private key.
# (string value)

# If set, then the server's certificate will not be verified.
# (boolean value)

It all depends on how you configure your Openstack installation.

SSL would have been my next question. What I am more interested in are credentials, htaccess or something of the sort, so that only the tenant will be able to POST to the up/down scale URLs
