Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-996) explore exposing accumulo token in proxy
Date Mon, 28 Jan 2013 18:33:14 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-996?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13564493#comment-13564493

Keith Turner commented on ACCUMULO-996:
---------------------------------------

What do people think about doing the following in the proxy instead of always passing user
pass?

{code}

   struct ProxyToken {
      long token;
   }
   

   ProxyToken authenticateUserPass(UserPass up);
   ProxyToken authenticateKerberose(KerberoseToken kt);

    i32 addConstraint (1:ProxyToken token, 2:string tableName, 3:string constraintClassName)

{code}


This would allow the proxy to use different authetication mechanisms.  The token woudl be
transient, generated using secure random, and time out when inactive.

> with the new security related changes for 1.5, do the new authentication mechanism need
to be exposed in the proxy?
