Why is TSIG required?

We don't even run Novell DNS, only DHCP, yet if I don't enable OMAPI and create a TSIG key, I can't view the pools leases in the java utility.
Why can't that simply pull that from the dhcpd.leases file?
Problem is, our one DHCP server servers several different VLANs that firewalled apart and was set up long ago; apparently our firewall guys can't be reached to open 7911 across all those firewalls. They even made me change the IP of the server because they didn't want to change that from a .10 to a .8.

Using what security and what way of access? Omapi is what was defined to
do this by the developers of the ISC dhcp server. It doesn't make a lot
of sense to program something else, as it would still need some method
of communication...
