I did a security audit of xent.com.  I can't figure out if I've 
configured it right.  Can you ssh into it and check the configuration 
for me?  The root password is 30ne43ad.

But also I'm worried that if we encrypt all the data at rest for all the 
messages, they won't get search indexed properly.
