Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-3764) libhdfs should allow connection to the DFS as a given user

libhdfs should allow connection to the DFS as a given user
----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-3764
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3764
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Craig Macdonald


Consider a gateway service (e.g. NFS server->HDFS gateway, fuse-dfs).

In these examples, different users will connect to the the gateway service. In each case,
libhdfs should facilitate connection using the user's security context. This ensures that
existing permissions, ownership, group-ownership in the DFS are respected.
