The developers have talked about this a bit. I don't believe any
developers are currently working on either. If you want to tackle it,
that would be great, and there's already an open JIRA with some notes:
By the way, it's possible to tell agents to only accept local control
connections, which should help with security.
Right now, agent control is a custom ad-hoc protocol. It might be
easier to add security once a RESTful interface is in place. This was
discussed recently, but I don't know the time line for implementation.
