Lets call msync tier 0, Public mirrors tier 1, and private mirrors that 
pull tier 2. For sake of this next paragraph.
If were going to talk ACL's, I think IP based would be the best. And 
really, I think its the most secure, Without having to get to 
complicated (keys). Passwords wouldn't work as every tier 1 mirror would 
need that password (Shared passwords=Bad). If it were IP based, All a 
tier 1 would have to do is state the IP they would be pulling with for 
centos to add to the ACL.
