Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6419) Change RPC layer to support SASL/token based mutual authentication

Raghu Angadi commented on HADOOP-6419:
--------------------------------------


I think so. RPC implementation in Hadoop is well isolated from user code, making it some what
easier to replace with it with another one. I am interested in implementing a Netty based
RPC server (as prototype).. I am planning to spend more time on this this week. will check
how it would fit in with AVRO-341 and HDFS-892.

> The authentication mechanism to use will be SASL DIGEST-MD5 (see RFC-2222 and RFC-2831).
Since J2SE 5, Sun provides a SASL implementation by default. Both our delegation token and
job token can be used as credentials for SASL DIGEST-MD5 authentication.
