Encrytion of NFS could come via TLS.

Recommended Posts

For a long time I have wanted a simple and secure way to deploy NFS.  While there are some options such as Kerberos it's not what I would call easy to set up.  This may change based on what I read here:

https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-cel-nfsv4-rpc-tls-00

I won't claim to understand a lot of what is there.  If this becomes the new standard for NFS or even RPC in general could it then be possible to add USE="tls" to a later version of the packages and have it work "out of the box" with a stable and sane default config?  If someone has a valid SSL/TLS cert via Let's Encrypt could that same cert be used for encrypting all of their NFS and/or RPC traffic?

 

Thanks for putting up with my questions.
