                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-5851
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: contrib/hdfsproxy

            Priority: Critical


It is easy to manage user accounts using LDAP. by adding support for LDAP, proxy can do IP
authorization in a headless fashion. 

when a user send a request, proxy extract IP address and request PathInfo from the request.
then it searches the LDAP server to get the allowed HDFS root paths given the IP address.
Proxy will match the user request PathInfo with the allowed HDFS root path, return 403 if
it could not find a match.
