      Description

      In the current implementation, a build agent will accept a request from anyone who knows the url, although it will only send responses to the master url in its config file.

      The agent should only accept requests from its master, and should send an error response to any other requests.

      On the dev list, Christian suggested using a shared secret as the simplest way for the agent to be sure the master making the request is who it says it is. See: http://www.nabble.com/How-can-an-agent-be-sure-that-a-request-comes-from-its-master--td21546892.html
