Hi !

I'm building a new network for my company.
I need centralized authentication and looked after LDAP to achieve this. 
Unfortunately, there are 2 points that make me wonder the good use of it:
1. nss_ldap and pam-ldap need FreeBSD-5.1 and are not for production use
2. I really don't feel confident with LDAP

So, I was thinking about using NIS instead, with which I feel much more 
confident. I understand it is really not secure, so I was looking about more 
information on this: why is is unsecure, does it send password in clear text 
?
Does anyone know a solution for securing NIS, using ssh or encrypted tunnels 
or anything... I am open to any new idea :)

Thanks in advance.

Regards.
