There's nothing inherent to CFEngine that would cause it to copy *all*
of the ppkeys. Do you perhaps have a copy statement that downloads all
of the master's /var/cfengine/ppkeys?

However, the .pub's are not considered secret information -- posessing
them gives no special access to anything. I suppose though you could
consider it an information-leak as it tells you what other clients are
running CFE.
