Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8779) Use tokens regardless of authentication type
Date Mon, 10 Sep 2012 15:12:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8779?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13452054#comment-13452054

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-8779:

I don't mind what jargon we use.  We'll call tokens another auth method.
bq. Secondly, this JIRA is not needed; it is already assumed by HADOOP-8758. The decoupling
of Kerberos from existing delegation token implementations [...]

The intention of this jira is to break the artificial limitation that the client will not
request tokens if auth is simple, and the server will refuse tokens if the auth is simple.

I split this off because it's a much simpler high value change that will prevent HADOOP-8785
from being a big-bang patch.  If you think this should be a sub-task, I think that's reasonable.

> Security is a combination of authentication and authorization (tokens).  Authorization
may be granted independently of the authentication model.  Tokens should be used regardless
of simple or kerberos authentication.
