Subject RE: Authentication - Kerberose
Date Fri, 02 Nov 2012 01:39:29 GMT
Hi John, is dated in January and it talks to ZKAuthentictor
being schedule for 1.5. Would you be able to provide an update on the status? It's almost
a year later and 1.5 is on the horizon. It would be awesome to be able to make the statement
that, "Accumulo will have robust authentication in the 1.5 release.", especially given the
window of opportunity!

Those supporting competing technologies are making statements like, "we plan to implement
'this' in future releases" or "we're close but not there yet" (although they already have
authentication). There are subtle but significant difference in technologies that do and ones
that will do, soon. 
PS -  Thanks for the feedback, Mike

It looks like it was planned for 1.5, but John can probably chime in and let us know of the

To whom it may concern:

Can you please provide a schedule of if/when Accumulo will use Kerberose for authentication?
I’m working with multiple customers that are collecting data to make decisions to use Accumulo
or other technologies. The absence of strong authentication with Accumulo is a major concern
(and less subjective).

Also, is there a POC for new features that will be available in 1.5?
