+<h3 id="client-authentication-with-kerberos">Client Authentication with Kerberos</h3>
+<p>Kerberos is far and away the de-facto means provide strong authentication across
Hadoop
+and other related components. Kerberos uses requires a centralized key distribution center
+to authentication users who have credentials provided by an administrator. When Hadoop is
+configured for use with Kerberos, all users must provide Kerberos credentials to interact
+with the filesystem, launch YARN jobs, or even view certain web pages.</p>
+<p>While Accumulo has long supported operation on Hadoop with Kerberos enabled, it
required
+Accumulo users to still use password-based authentication. <a href="https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2815">ACCUMULO-2815</a>
+added support to Accumulo to allow Accumulo clients to use a single set of Kerberos
+credentials to interact with Accumulo and all other Hadoop components.</p>
+<p>This authentication leverages the <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simple_Authentication_and_Security_Layer">Simple
Authentication and Security Layer (SASL)</a>
+and <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Generic_Security_Services_Application_Program_Interface">GSSAPI</a>
to support Kerberos authentication over the existing Thrift-base
+RPC infrastructure that Accumulo leverages.</p>
+<p>These additions represent a significant forward step for Accumulo, bringing it up
to
+speed with the rest of the Hadoop components. This results in a much more cohesive
+security story for Accumulo that resonates with the battle-tested cell-level security
+and authorization module.</p>
