------------------------------------

             Summary: Create a more secure way to obtain and handle KDC administrator credentials
                 Key: AMBARI-8734
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-8734
             Project: Ambari
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: ambari-server
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0
            Reporter: Robert Levas
            Assignee: Robert Levas
             Fix For: 2.1.0


The current mechanism for obtaining and handling KDC administrator credentials is not particularly
secure thus allowing any knowledgeable user to potentally gain access to them.

A new mechanism needs to be put in place to security store this data for at least the duration
of a HTTP session and potentially longer in the event Ambari allow for long-term storage of
this data. 

Ideally any solution is generic enough to handle secure data of any type.
