Airship Security Guide

An undercloud environment deployed via Airship crosses many security domains. This guide explains many of the security concerns that have been reviewed and considered by the Airship developers. Because Airship is a highly configuration-driven platform, there is some onus on the end-user to make good decisions with their configuration.
