Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6299) Use JAAS LoginContext for our login
Date Thu, 28 Jan 2010 00:28:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6299?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12805716#action_12805716

Owen O'Malley commented on HADOOP-6299:
---------------------------------------

They were never intended to be public interfaces. They were intended to be limited to HDFS
and MapReduce.

User still exists, it was just made non-public, which is hard to mark with deprecation. If
the community thinks it is important to keep a deprecated UnixUGI, please open a new jira.

> 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.
