Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-12804) Read Proxy Password from Credential Providers in S3 FileSystem
Date Sat, 13 Feb 2016 14:44:18 GMT
Larry McCay created HADOOP-12804:

             Summary: Read Proxy Password from Credential Providers in S3 FileSystem
                 Key: HADOOP-12804
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-12804
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: fs/s3
            Reporter: Larry McCay
            Assignee: Larry McCay

HADOOP-12548 added credential provider support for the AWS credentials to S3FileSystem. This
JIRA is for considering the use of the credential providers for the proxy password as well.

Instead of adding the proxy password to the config file directly and in clear text, we could
provision it in addition to the AWS credentials into a credential provider and keep it out
of clear text.

In terms of usage, it could be added to the same credential store as the AWS credentials or
potentially to a more universally available path - since it is the same for everyone. This
would however require multiple providers to be configured in the provider.path property and
more open file permissions on the store itself.
