> 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.
