Starting with 1.1, Cornerstone does not share keychain items with the Subversion command-line tools. Users upgrading from 1.0 will be prompted for their password when they connect to the repository for the first time.
The HTTP protocol — the same protocol used to access web servers on the Internet — provides no security when accessing a Subversion repository. Traffic sent to and from the server is transmitted in the clear and can be inspected (and potentially modified) by a third party.
Many Subversion repositories on the Web offer both secure (HTTPS) and non-secure access (HTTP). HTTPS is slightly slower than HTTP but is nonetheless recommended when connecting to a repository over a public network such as the Internet.
Cornerstone displays a padlock in the top-right corner of the main window when connected securely to a repository through HTTPS.
