    I used to run NFS over IPSec. Everything worked fine; event between
    linux, FreeBSD and W2K. IPSec provides authentication (you asked for)
    and encryption (you COULD turn encryption off and just leave
    authentication in place).

    When running a 2.6.x Kernel everything is in place -- you dont have to
    patch anything.
