I prefer using SSH.  pserver stores the password (mildly encrypted) on the
file system (eg root can figure it out).


I was wondering if there was information out there on how best to secure

How secure is the pserver mode?  Can a user who has a CVS account gain root
access on a system running pserver?

I am not concerned with the passwords being passed in the clear because I
using STUNNEL for the pserver protocol.

How useful is it to setup a chroot environment?

Thanks for any info, pointers, etc...
