Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8458) Add management hook to AuthenticationHandler to enable delegation token operations support
Date Mon, 11 Jun 2012 18:42:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8458?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13292962#comment-13292962

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HADOOP-8458:

@Daryn, any update on your side? BTW, don't see how this JIRA would affect host-based tokens
as it is only enabling a mechanism for the authhandler to perform auth management operations.

> Currently hadoop-auth AuthenticationHandler only authenticates a request.
> While it can easily be extended to authenticate delegation tokens, it cannot handle the
delegation token get/renew/cancel operations.
> The motivation of this new feature is that the above delegation token operations should
be handled by a security component (hadoop-auth) instead of a functional component (httpfs
implementation). Ideally we should have a complete separation of concerns between delegation
token management and FileSystem/MapReduce/YARN API, but we don't. This change is a step on
that directory for HTTP based services (like HttpFS).
