> 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.
