This is about exchanging ssh keys amongst the managed systems:

  • host keys (could be managed in puppet)
  • passwordless root access from puppetmaster to other systems

This may be best done after the puppetmaster is installed. If this was an existing infrastructure, we'd want a way to log into each system to set up puppet. But in this case, maybe we move this to after the puppetmaster is running. That way, we can use a simple ssh module to disable ssh for root without a valid key, and push root@puppetmaster's RSA or DSA key to the clients.

So we'll make a simple ssh module as an exercise in this part, and as an introduction to making our own modules.
