Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-5405) Adding support for HDFS proxy
Date Thu, 05 Mar 2009 02:19:56 GMT
Adding support for HDFS proxy

                 Key: HADOOP-5405
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5405
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: security
            Reporter: Kan Zhang
            Assignee: Kan Zhang

Currently, HDFS doesn't authenticate users. The client simply tells HDFS who she is and HDFS
will take her word for it. That makes it possible for HDFS proxy to access HDFS on behalf
of a user - the proxy simply claims to be that user. Once we turn on authentication, the proxy
can't do that without having user's credentials. We need a solution such that HDFS proxy can
continue to access HDFS on behalf of users.
