cvsd

'cvsd' is a configurable chroot/suid wrapper for running a CVS pserver more securely. The hope is that cvsd will allow people to run remotely accessible CVS repositories more securely. The distribution includes a script for setting up the chroot'd environment and user/group. It works by running 'cvs pserver' under a special uid/gid ina chroot jail. The authors notes, however, that for authentication the user should consider using SSh as a secure authentication mechanism and transport, because passwords in 'cvs pserver' are transmitted in plain text and 'cvsd' does not change that.
