>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLINK-5364
>             Project: Flink
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Cluster Management
>            Reporter: Eron Wright

>            Priority: Critical
>              Labels: kerberos, security
> Recent issues (see linked) have brought to light a critical deficiency in the handling
of JAAS configuration.   
> 1. the MapR distribution relies on an explicit JAAS conf, rather than in-memory conf
used by stock Hadoop.
> 2. the ZK/Kafka/Hadoop security configuration is supposed to be independent (one can
enable each element separately) but isn't.
> Perhaps we should rework the JAAS conf code to merge any user-supplied configuration
with our defaults, rather than using an all-or-nothing approach.   
> We should also address some recent regressions:
> 1. The HadoopSecurityContext should be installed regardless of auth mode, to login with
UserGroupInformation, which:
> - handles the HADOOP_USER_NAME variable.
> - installs an OS-specific user principal (from UnixLoginModule etc.) unrelated to Kerberos.
> - picks up the HDFS/HBASE delegation tokens.
> 2. Fix the use of alternative authentication methods - delegation tokens and Kerberos
ticket cache.
