Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-6299) Use JAAS LoginContext for our login
Date Thu, 08 Oct 2009 07:49:31 GMT
Use JAAS LoginContext for our login

                 Key: HADOOP-6299
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6299
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: security
            Reporter: Arun C Murthy

Currently we use a custom login module in UnixUserGroupInformation for acquiring user-credentials
(via config or exec'ing 'whoami'). We should switch to using standard JAAS components such
as LoginContext and possibly implement a custom UnixLoginContext for our current requirements.
In future we can use this for Kerberos etc.
