Subject Re: Kafka 0.10 jaas multiple clients
Date Thu, 25 May 2017 16:27:29 GMT
Gordon's suggestion seems like a good way to provide per-job credentials
based on application-specific properties.   In contrast, Flink's built-in
JAAS features are aimed at making the Flink cluster's Kerberos credentials
available to jobs.

I want to reiterate that all jobs (for a given Flink cluster) run with full
privilege in the JVM, and that Flink does not guarantee isolation (of
security information) between jobs.   My suggestion is to not run untrusted
job code in a shared Flink cluster.
