Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-6568) Authorization for default servlets
Date Mon, 15 Feb 2010 09:43:28 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6568?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12833738#action_12833738
] 

Vinod K V commented on HADOOP-6568:
-----------------------------------

For the sake of authentication, we can use the framework for web-filters added by HADOOP-3854.
Once authenticated, we can obtain the identity of the user who logged in by using the Servlet
API {{request.getRemoteUser()}}. Using this and a configuration for super-users and super-groups
we can authorize access to these servlets. Thoughts?

> We have the following default servlets: /logs, /static, /stacks, /logLevel, /metrics,
/conf. Barring "/static", rest of the servlets provide information that is only for administrators.
In the context of security for the web-servlets, we need protected access to these pages.
