Question NFS server security


Hello everyone!

I've just configured my NFS server and I'd like to know the options that I have to ensure that all of the users of my NFS server are authenticated before access is granted. I'd prefer to use freeradius since I already have a radius server in my LAN. Got any info on this guys?

Appreciate your help!

There is no security in NFS beside restricting the IPs/Hostnames that can connect. When they do mount you can use user/group permissions to restrict file access but you must be admin on the clients as well to control user accounts. You might have to use openAFS to get mount+auth.
