Background

(someone please fix this up)
Lustre Kerberos implements the Kerberos-5 security protocol to protect the privacy, integrity, and authenticity of Lustre-protocol messages. Basically the way this works is that the *sptlrpc* layer wraps each Lustre RPC inside an sptlrpc envelope, protecting all the data (including the header and other metadata) of the original message.
