Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-8779) Use tokens regardless of authentication type
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2012 16:34:03 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-8779?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13478008#comment-13478008

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-8779:

I believe you are misunderstanding the patch, or I have an unintentional bug.  To save people
a trip to HDFS-4056, here's the relevant info:
bq. SIMPLE is still supported as it currently is today. The difference is that a SIMPLE auth
connection may also use a token, whereas today an insecure cluster will kick a client back
into SIMPLE auth if it attempts to negotiate DIGEST-MD5 with a token. Clients are not strictly
required to use a token.

> 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.
