I am currently managing a network of workstations running different flavours of Ubuntu. The server (also Ubuntu) runs a
NIS server and exports a shared
/home directory over
NFS (in v3 compatibility mode). Workstations are configured to mount
/home using static
fstab entries. Users can log-in from any workstation to their account while their
/home/xxx directory is always accessible (Quite old-school).
The problem (one out of many of course) with the current setup is, users can see the whole
/home. If users are not careful with file permissions in their home directories, their data can be accessed by other users.
I need advice on how to improve/upgrade the system, preferably with minimal change to the current setup.
