      Description

      The internode authenticator (IInternodeAuthenticator) should support inspecting the existing connections and close the connections if no longer permitted.

      It would be useful and necessary for the dynamic internode authenticator implementations, which may stop authenticating connections between some nodes at a later time point.

      The current interface only authenticates on a connection during tcp/nodes handshake. It leaves the existing connection alive and the nodes are still able to communicate, after the authenticator has been updated to not permit connections between the nodes.
