Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8779) Use tokens regardless of authentication type
Date Thu, 18 Oct 2012 17:40:06 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8779?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13479171#comment-13479171

Kan Zhang commented on HADOOP-8779:
-----------------------------------

I think the "AuthMethod" field in the Connection class should be decided primarily on 1) connection
type (initial or subsequent) and 2) what auth method is configured for that connection type.
What credentials the client currently has only comes into play when multiple auth methods
are configured for the intended connection type and we have a choice.

> 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.
