I did a bit of scratching around on Google and found link [0].

It states that fnord supports a few layers of security, such as password
authentication, user groups, and restriction by IP address.

Is there documentation available about these features, or would Carolyn
benefit from posting to the fnord mailing list (fnord-subscribe@fefe.de)
as mentioned at [1]?

Regards,
Duane
