> 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.
