RE: is NFS secure ?

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but unlike samba for example, NFS
doesn't offer a way to allow only certain users for example to connect
to a share; Restrictions based on IP address can only be applied to the
portmap daemon...  Are those statements accurate?  Thanks.

I didn't say that. NFSv4 offers significant security and performance
enhancements over older versions of NFS protocol. For example, NFSv4
incorporates RPCSEC-GSS (Secure RPC using generic security service API)
security, which makes it possible to encrypt the data stream transmitted
between  NFS clients and servers. That's SECURE in my book :)
