Will older docs suffice for enabling SSL on Hiveserver2 on HDP-2.3.x?

Explorer

I know the HDP-2.3 security guide is in progress, but, had two questions on enabling SSL for HiveServer2. In this use case, there are no plans to deploy Kerberos or Knox at this time, but, the desire is to have some sort of encrypted traffic for Hiveserver2:

1) Will these docs suffice?:

http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.1.5/bk_Security_Guide/content/ch_wire-hiveserver...

2) Does Hiveserver2 SSL work only in http mode? Or it can be turned on for binary mode too?

The docs generally look in good shape. One minor correction:

Instead of "hive.server2.enable.SSL" use "hive.server2.use.SSL"

It can be turned ON in both binary and http mode.

Thank you!--I'm creating a Jira to make sure this info gets incorporated into the new Security guide.
