RE: is NFS secure ?



Hi -

Asking if something is "secure" is a pretty vague question... Whether your system is secure or not depends on how you are using it, and what level of security you need. I can't speak for NFSv4 yet.

See the manual page for /etc/exports to learn how to restrict who can mount your filesystems, read-write or read-only, and whether the clients' root account has privs or not.

You could even use iptables (or another firewall) to restrict clients.

NFS does not encrypt traffic, but it might be possible to run NFS over an VPN or SSH-tunnel.

So, NFS versions before NFSv4 were not secure right ?
