Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9054) Add AuthenticationHandler that uses Kerberos but allows for an alternate form of authentication for browsers
Date Sat, 17 Nov 2012 20:38:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9054?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13499512#comment-13499512
] 

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

On the Hadoop side, the authentication handler is already plug-able. So it looks like you
want to make them chain-able? Also keep in mind that on the Hadoop-side, the user is going
to get bounced around a lot.  As a result, this means they might need to re-authenticate on
every host if one isn't careful about the implementation.

> 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.
