Hi Flume Users,


We’d like to have authentication between Flume Nodes and Clients.

I believe that currently there’s no easy way to set up any kind of authentication between Avro Sources, Sinks, and RpcClients.


I would like to ask what would be the best way to extend Flume to support authentication?

Would it be enough to extend or rewrite Avro Source, Sink and RpcClient?

Does Avro or Netty support authentication?


We’d prefer using Kerberos or maybe SPNEGO, but I’m not sure what options do we have.


Thanks and regards,
