[CKAN-Security] CKAN security best practices

I'm currently in the process of evaluating CKAN's security framework for an
open data portal we're building. I'm wondering if you have any reference
documentation for security best practices when installing CKAN?

On a related note, I've noticed that on some CKAN installations, I can hit
the user_list API without an authorisation token and get a list of
usernames, names and sysadmin (TRUE/FALSE). I'm presuming this is not the
recommended approach, is there any documentation you can share that allows
sysadmins to limit the API calls that are available to users?
