Arpit Gupta commented on FALCON-14:
-----------------------------------

bq. Can you also please check on the mode and user permissions of the keytab file before initiating
the app authentication? It would be a key intermediate step to read and impose the necessary
permissions on the keytab before the startup/initialization of the kerberos methods

I would avoid setting permissions because keytab file could be owned by root and readable
by a user in a specific group in some setups. I think its better if the sys ops did this.
