From: "Daniel P. Berrange" <berrange@redhat.com>

The VNC server has historically had support for ACLs to check both the
SASL username and the TLS x509 distinguished name. The VNC server was
responsible for creating the initial ACL, and the client app was then
responsible for populating it with rules using the HMP 'acl_add' command.

This is not satisfactory for a variety of reasons. There is no way to
populate the ACLs from the command line, users are forced to use the
HMP. With multiple network services all supporting TLS and ACLs now, it
is desirable to be able to define a single ACL that is referenced by all
services.

To address these limitations, two new options are added to the VNC
server CLI. The 'tls-authz' option takes the ID of a QAuthZ object to
use for checking TLS x509 distinguished names, and the 'sasl-authz'
option takes the ID of another object to use for checking SASL usernames.

In this example, we setup two authorization rules. The first allows any
client with a certificate issued by the 'RedHat' organization in the
'London' locality. The second ACL allows clients with either the
'joe@REDHAT.COM' or  'fred@REDHAT.COM' kerberos usernames. Both checks
must pass for the user to be allowed.

    $QEMU -object tls-creds-x509,id=tls0,dir=/home/berrange/qemutls,\
                  endpoint=server,verify-peer=yes \
          -object authz-simple,id=authz0,policy=deny,\
                  rules.0.match=O=RedHat,,L=London,rules.0.policy=allow \
          -object authz-simple,id=authz1,policy=deny,\
                  rules.0.match=fred@REDHAT.COM,rules.0.policy=allow \
                  rules.0.match=joe@REDHAT.COM,rules.0.policy=allow \
          -vnc 0.0.0.0:1,tls-creds=tls0,tls-authz=authz0,
	       sasl,sasl-authz=authz1 \
          ...other QEMU args...

-Turn on access control lists for checking of the x509 client certificate
-and SASL party. For x509 certs, the ACL check is made against the
-certificate's distinguished name. This is something that looks like
-@code{C=GB,O=ACME,L=Boston,CN=bob}. For SASL party, the ACL check is
-made against the username, which depending on the SASL plugin, may
-include a realm component, eg @code{bob} or @code{bob@@EXAMPLE.COM}.
-When the @option{acl} flag is set, the initial access list will be
-empty, with a @code{deny} policy. Thus no one will be allowed to
-use the VNC server until the ACLs have been loaded. This can be
-achieved using the @code{acl} monitor command.
+Legacy method for enabling authorization of clients against the
+x509 distinguished name and SASL username. It results in the creation
+of two @code{authz-list} objects with IDs of @code{vnc.username} and
+@code{vnc.x509dname}. The rules for these objects must be configured
+with the HMP ACL commands.
+
+This option is deprecated and should no longer be used. The new
+@option{sasl-authz} and @option{tls-authz} options are a
+replacement.
