> In order for Falcon REST API to work securely via the Knox gateway it must be possible
to setup a trust relationship between Knox and Falcon. This is commonly done in other Hadoop
ecosystem components using a combination of Kerberos/SPNego and a doas URL query parameter.
This provides a mechanism for Falcon to strongly authenticate Knox as a trusted proxy, ensuring
that it can trust the identity assertions made via the doas query parameter. The links below
provide some information describing how this is done for core Hadoop. Also note that most
components utilize Hadoop core's reusable hadoop-auth module to implement this functionality.
