Subject [jira] [Updated] (AMBARI-18836) Remove group readable from hdfs headless keytab
Date Wed, 09 Nov 2016 20:05:58 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AMBARI-18836?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Shi Wang updated AMBARI-18836:
------------------------------
    Description: 
The Smoke and “Headless” Service users are used by Ambari to perform service “smoke”
checks and run alert health checks. 
The permission for hdfs.headless.keytab is 440. But it will cause security concern to allow
other service user in hadoop group to kinit hdfs headless principal using hdfs.headless.keytab.
In this way, other service user could "pretend" to be hdfs user and be granted hdfs user's
authorities.
