The line you are looking for is 'TrustKeysFrom'. Cfservd will trust the
key from any ip in the given subnet the first time it sees it; if a host
changes keys it will not be trusted.

TrustKeysFrom = ( 192.168 10.3 172.16 )

Subject: Trust dilemma

I am trying to set up a fairly standardized system where junior
sysadmins are able to add new systems into the cfengine setup.  I have
most of the steps properly automated so that they do not need special
access on the cfengine master server, except for the issue of the new
client's public key.

I can't figure out a way to force cfservd to trust a range of IPs
despite the examples given in the reference guide.  I know what ranges
of IPs I want to trust, but it seems to only trust pre-existing keys or
individual IPs.  (I can't afford to manually add every single IP).

This is cfengine 3.1.15.

I've tried tricks like ACLs on the /var/cfengine/ppkeys directory, but
that causes complaints on the master server. 

Any suggestions or am I overthinking this?
