Subject: [OpenAFS] Purging the client cache

One of the concerns raised by our Information Security Office is that a
primary point of this space is to get the data off of people's hard drives
and into central storage that can be managed securely.  If the data
persists in users' caches after they disconnect from the VPN required to
access the secure space directly, this would partly defeat this purpose.

Do you have the ability to control which clients can access this space?
If so, would saying, "Thou shalt use memcache" (perhaps followed by mandato=
ry reboot) mitigate the issue?
