I mean something that I can put on a normal company network
and have the 100 boxes you mention connect to it. A local
only implementation or a completely unauthenticated daemon
does not meet these requirements. Neither does any stunnel
construct which way too easy to screw up.

It's a bit like Samba4: It needs to be simple to set up and
be reasonably secure without much configuration.
