Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-1129) Make it easier for users to construct and use a security token
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2013 19:11:13 GMT
Christopher Tubbs created ACCUMULO-1129:

             Summary: Make it easier for users to construct and use a security token
                 Key: ACCUMULO-1129
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Sub-task
            Reporter: Christopher Tubbs
            Assignee: Christopher Tubbs
             Fix For: 1.5.0

In comments on ACCUMULO-1041, we discussed options for simplifying the API for "logging in"
or, more appropriately, getting tokens to create a Connector with.

The main idea is:
# add "Connector getConnector(String p, Props)" AND "SecurityToken getSecurityToken(Props)"
to Instance
# would be nice to have a way to automatically get possible prop keys

The idea of properties here is to provide an interface for passing any set of credentials
to an authentication system to either get a connector directly (with the token being constructed
internally), or to get a (potentially) re-usable token. This is especially important for components
like the proxy, for which we'd rather not implement every possible security token type, nor
do we want to require every possible authentication service be written to support every language
that the proxy supports.
