Thanks for explaining.
The trust concept you outline is definitely not acceptable - we need a
capability for all access and modifications done through clients on behalf
of a capability.
Even changes made by the MDS need to be secured - that can be through a
kerberos connection, and again, not through blind trust.
Would you please send the capability HLD to me? Thanks!
