Security:  Need to be able to encrypt Hadoop socket connections
---------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-2239
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-2239
             Project: Hadoop
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Allen Wittenauer


We need to be able to use hadoop over hostile networks, both internally and externally to
the enterpise.  While authentication prevents unauthorized access, encryption should be used
to prevent such things as packet snooping across the wire.  This means that hadoop client
connections, distcp, etc, would use something such as SSL to protect the TCP/IP packets. 
Post-Kerberos, it would be useful to use something similar to NFS's krb5p option.
