[PetiteCloud] how much security?

Password authentication would be sufficient in the early stages but 
perhaps there should be minimum length and complexity requirements. Also 
make sure that whatever password storage back end used will store the 
passwords safely and effectively. Adding AD and LDAP support would be of 
big interest in companies. The support can either be direct PC to 
AD\LDAP or perhaps PC could have an option to use to already existing 
host users and groups which would include AD\LDAP users if the host is 
setup before hand. This is of course won't work if the idea of PC is 
going to be including it's own OS, but I assume PC will just be 
installed on whatever host OS the admin chooses.
