Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-7070) JAAS configuration should delegate unknown application names to pre-existing configuration
Date Mon, 20 Dec 2010 23:19:02 GMT
JAAS configuration should delegate unknown application names to pre-existing configuration
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: HADOOP-7070
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7070
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 0.22.0, 0.23.0
            Reporter: Todd Lipcon
            Assignee: Todd Lipcon
            Priority: Critical


As reported here: https://issues.cloudera.org/browse/DISTRO-66 it is impossible to use secured
Hadoop inside an application that relies on other JAAS configurations. This is because the
static initializer of UserGroupInformation replaces the JAAS configuration, but we don't delegate
unknown applications up to whatever Configuration was installed previously. The delegation
technique seems to be used by JBoss's XMLLoginConfigImpl for example.
