From the horse's mouth: Apple posts pre-release iOS 8 Configuration Profile Reference

Your rating: None (6 votes)

It seems Apple has made the prerelease Configuration Profile Key Reference available to the public. This the technical documentation for much of the iOS and Mac enterprise management capabilities Apple makes available via MDM vendors, Configurator, etc. (The other main document, the MDM Protocol Reference, remains behind the developer site authentication wall.)

I've done a diff with the documentation for iOS 7, and here are the highlights. Remember, this is prerelease and may change before release.
