Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-259) ZKAuthentictor needs to be split up
Date Tue, 10 Jan 2012 00:12:39 GMT


John Vines commented on ACCUMULO-259:

Thought I made a ticket for this, but closest I can find is the comment in ACCUMULO-238 .
This is step one. Step two is to do as you described- seperate the 'authority provider' from
the 'authenticator'. This way we can let users authenticate against one system that may or
may not be able of holding credentials. So, as you said, they could authenticate against one
system and then use zookeeper for their various credentials.

And I agree on the errors.

> Currently the ZKAuthenticator does both the checking of credentials as well as the functionality
of the Authenticator. We need to split those into two different classes for improved testing
as well as pluggability of the security scheme.
