In one apps project, they requested to use NFS (Netw File Share)  on Solaris:
My concern is
a) unlike Windows which can have Windows firewall to restrict who can access the NFS share
    (ie endpoint firewall), Solaris are not known to have its own endpoint firewall
b) NFS traffic are not encrypted, correct?
c) NFS authentication is weak?  : Pls elaborate in what way?

What are the mitigations we can put in place if the apps team still wants it?
