Distributed Passwd File Tools

    Greetings, All.

    I'm looking for tools that manage passwords in a distributed
    environment consisting of over 100 nodes. Yellow Plague is
    not an option due to the diverse nature of the subnets. Any
    pointers would be greatly appreciated.

1. Using rdist to distribute passwd files.

  Hello.  I am wondering what the best way to distribute passwd files across a
network of linux boxes is.  I'd like to avoid NIS/yp, because of the security
risks and other problems associated with it.  Doing it over nfs is also not
an option, the speed on our systems just isn't adequate.  

I have heard its possible to distribute them via rdist/rdistd, and after looking
at the package, i cannot see how this is done.  Presently, i would just like to
get two machines up, with the same passwd files on each.  I want it so if a user
changes their passwd on machine1, in a couple minutes or whatever the change is
reflected in machine2, and the other way around..
