Hi all,

I'd like to exactly know what the security risks are when using
the hosts equiv option.

Specificaly, with a hosts.allow limited to the server himself,
as to allow mounting shares from the server himself without
password, to take advantage from impersonation on some shares,
and having only root allowed to do mounts.

Thanks for your answers or alternative proposals.
