Hi Adam

In case it fits your needs to just block output of
encrypted password entries it is possible to splice
the password map into separate passwd- and shadow-

Anyway.... I would *never* set up hosts in a DMZ
as NIS-Clients, and I would restrict access to an
internal (= not DMZ) NIS-Server via /var/yp/securenets
to internal clients only. NIS is a nightmare if it
comes to security issues.
