Hi - we are using JIRA on a machine which has IIS listening to port 80. At the moment, tomcat is listening to another port, and I have written rules in the firewall only to open that port up to certain ip-addresses.
However, for an upcoming project I would like to have JIRA accessible to lots more people without maintaining a list of all their ip addresses.
It is fine for them to access JIRA with the non-standard port. I.e.,we do not need them to come in on port 80.
So the question is, what are the security risks of opening up the JIRA port to all ip-addresses?
Put another way: Are there security risks to exposing the port that tomcat is listening to directly to the outside world?
Or: Does the JIRA & tomcat have any obvious security holes?
