In the EROS case, you could either have a cluster-wide key or you could have
unique keys for each node and use various tricks for key exchange. The key
point here is that the operating system kernels are mutually trusting in
clustered EROS, so we are concerned about link encryption rather than
You could also, of course, build application-level clustering. This would be
done pretty much the same way that it is done on UNIX systems.
