The simplest and most secure way to secure memcached is by using unix 
sockets if your memcached instance is running on the same machine as 
your memcache clients (e.g. radiusd). The memcache data won't be 
accessible remotely because memcached is not listening on an inet 
socket. Use appropriate ownership and permissions on the socket file.
