Does anyone have any suggestion on how to solve the problem of centralized authentication for about 10 linux users? I'm trying to find the easiest set-up possible but I'd like to have some kind of encryption. I've been looking into CentOS directory server and am currently trying to test how to get SSL enabled properly. 

Otherwise I have also considered trying to authenticate Linux machines against AD ('likewise open' anyone?) since I have some Windows machines. Anyone have any good suggestions on where I can start?

P.S. yeah, i've done some googling but wanted some opinions of you fine linux people :)
