A good starting point might be the 386/BSD, Linux YP implementation.
Since the source is available you can add whatever security measures you
like to it.  I'm not sure if their ypserv/ypbind are drop-in replacements
for the ONC versions, (e.g. if the file formatt etc are the same), but it
shouldn't be too hard to check.

The FreeBSD   2.0+ implementation is  compatible with   Sun's YP and should
interoperate without problem.  A lot of  bugs have been fixed in -current's
sources. It supports everything including netgroups and s on.
