Description

Right now the embedded HTTP server can only listen on network interfaces. This means that it is accessible to all processes on the system. It would be good if Wt could be configured to listen on a UNIX socket so that filesystem permissions can be applied. For example the permissions could be set so that only a reverse proxy could access it.

An additional benefit is increased performance.
