Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-3045) Support AuthenticationToken backed by CredentialProvider
Date Mon, 04 Aug 2014 22:41:12 GMT
Josh Elser created ACCUMULO-3045:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Support AuthenticationToken backed by CredentialProvider
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3045
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACCUMULO-3045
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: client
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser
             Fix For: 1.6.1, 1.7.0


Along the same lines as ACCUMULO-2464, the MapReduce AuthenticationToken serialization also
has the potential to be stored in a non-secure form. Some of this is mitigated via Base64
the password to remove human-readable-ness, the ability to serialize an AuthenticationToken
to a file, etc.

Wiring up a CredentialProvider as an AuthenticationToken is another option provided to us
by Hadoop likely to handle tricky security-related concerns for us.
