Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-10671) Single sign on between web console and webhdfs
Date Mon, 09 Jun 2014 06:00:06 GMT
Kai Zheng created HADOOP-10671:

             Summary: Single sign on between web console and webhdfs
                 Key: HADOOP-10671
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10671
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: security
            Reporter: Kai Zheng
            Assignee: Kai Zheng

Currently it's not able to single sign on between hadoop web console and webhdfs since they
don't share common configurations as required to, such as signature secret to sign authenticaton
token, and domain cookie etc. This improvement would allow sso between the two, and also simplify
the configuration by removing the duplicate effort for the two parts.

The sso makes sense because in current web console, it integrates webhdfs and we should avoid
redundant sign on in different mechanisms. This is necessary when a certain authentication
mechanism other than SPNEGO is desired across web console and webhdfs.
