------------------------------------

             Summary: Kerberos authentication for clients
                 Key: ACCUMULO-2815
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-2815
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Sub-task
          Components: client
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.7.0


We have server authentication via Kerberos, but we don't have a way for clients to connect
to Accumulo using Kerberos.

HBase context: http://hbase.apache.org/book/security.html#d248e5472

We'll have to look into how Authorizations and Permissions are assigned to these users and
make sure the ZK-backed security mechanisms can still support this. It would be nice to not
have to make a completely separate auth/permission mechanism when kerberos is being used.

As far as configuration, I imagine this would be a great fit for the often-proposed client-side
configuration idea.
