Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-2432) MAC should have an option for creating it's own ssl certs
Date Thu, 19 Jun 2014 00:47:25 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-2432:

bq. what you're doing is optimizing the convenience of a test case that has little value,
rather than provide testers with valuable test results.

I think the difference here is that you do not see the value in users being able to run a
test against an Accumulo system running with secure RPC set up. I do. I think there is value
in having a secure setup, regardless of how exactly it was set up. Just as we can make it
easier for users to configure Accumulo with real, meaningful security (via the use of external
tools), we can still provide a simple default, using the same means that would allow for meaningful
security setups, that is less secure for those who are not at an advanced setup yet.

bq. There are already tools that make that convenient. Users should be using those tools and
interfacing with Accumulo in a way that doesn't sweep those details under a rug

This is a difference in opinion. I believe that *we* should either be interfacing with a tools
for them, or make it simpler for the user to do this themselves.

bq. I suppose I could wait until there's a patch to consider.

I would agree. My reason for speaking up was because it seemed like this issue was about to
be swept aside and I did not want that to happen. I think this has been thoroughly beat to
death as is.

> Currently ssl certs must be generated prior to starting mac, and passed in. We should
find a way to make that as seamless as possible.
