It depends what your slaves are doing, but yes, it'd be fairly trivial
for someone with network access to the middle to impersonate either
the slave (to intercept secrets from the master) or the master (to
make the slave do their bidding).

In many cases, that doesn't really matter - if the slaves just run
tests, and are not in a sensitive network, there's no real risk.
