Look in the archives for this message:

Subject: CVS passwd patch

This patch offers one solution.

If you are paranoid about security then I recommend you also disconnect
your computer from the internet, remove any floppy drives, cd burners,
zip drives, etc.  Then seal the whole thing in 4 feet of concrete and
lock it up in a vault.  That should resolve any security concerns you

Oh yeah, you could also use the nearly equally insecure ssh.
