I also don't know much about ZODB or what you want to do with it.

Depending on your requirements, it might be feasible to combine a remote
object protocol like PyRO or CORBA with ZODB.

If your aim is to get authentication into the ZODB client/server
architecture, then that's a different beast. Using SSL client and server
and client certificates might work. Perhaps there's even a way to do that
transparently with little helper apps like stunnel.

That's of course just my braindump ;-)
