Subject Re: Web interface to submit jobs
Date Thu, 05 Nov 2015 10:51:17 GMT
Security should definitely be in our minds big time.
We think we need to add secure cookies to akka very soon (makes akka
connections encrypted) and use encryption on the netty as well.

To that end, we should not introduce more loopholes now.

We can add an upload/execute section to the dashboard, but it would need to
be activated / deactivated by a flag in the cluster, so secure
installations can suppress this functionality.
I suggest to have it activated by default in standalone mode / YARN session
mode, and deactivated by default in the YARN-per-job mode.
