Subject [jira] [Created] (ACCUMULO-3490) Enable SPNEGO authentication for monitor
Date Fri, 16 Jan 2015 18:52:34 GMT
Josh Elser created ACCUMULO-3490:

             Summary: Enable SPNEGO authentication for monitor
                 Key: ACCUMULO-3490
             Project: Accumulo
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: monitor
            Reporter: Josh Elser
            Assignee: Josh Elser
             Fix For: 1.7.0

In non-technical terms, if we configure the monitor to support SPNEGO, we can get KRB authentication
of clients trying to connect to the Accumulo monitor. This is a typical deployment decision
made with Hadoop to protect things like the NN overview page and the RM page.

Including some authentication for the monitor has some general benefit. It would also be a
neat integration with the shell servlet -- automatically log you in and start using the shell
in your web-browser.
