Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9054) Add AuthenticationHandler that uses Kerberos but allows for an alternate form of authentication for browsers
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2012 18:19:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9054?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13500456#comment-13500456
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-9054:
------------------------------------------

Maybe this is dumb question but... why does Apache Hadoop need to provide this code, given
that this is already pluggable allowing users to provide their own bits now?  In other words,
if they already have this need to provide two (essentially) incompatible mechanisms what prevents
them?

> It would be useful for some Oozie users if, when using Kerberos, that browser access
to the oozie web UI could be authenticated in a different way (w/o Kerberos).  This may be
useful for other projects using Hadoop-Auth, so this feature is to add a new AuthenticationHandler
that uses Kerberos by default, unless a browser (user-agents are configurable) is used, in
which case some other form of authentication can be used.
