Network and Storage Protocols
I have a client who has just bought a new FAS2050 and he came with the following.
They use NIS and have always has the problem of passwords being in plane text.
The question that came up is there a way to make sure all passwords send will be encrypted???
I hope someone can give me a tip on how best to use NIS ( NIS + is not an option I am afraid. ).
Thanks in advance.
Are you wanting to have the passwords in the /etc/passwd file encrypted or when authentication happens over the network?
Authentication over the network.
You need to turn on Kerberos. Run nfs setup to turn it on. Have a snoop around the now.site first however.
