Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9019) KerberosAuthenticator.doSpnegoSequence(..) should create a HTTP principal with hostname everytime
Date Sat, 10 Nov 2012 13:53:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9019?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13494690#comment-13494690

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-9019:

I seem to recall that using IP addresses in principals was a big no-no since many clients
will do a reverse lookup as part of the validation sequence.  (This is why one of the most
effective ways to break Kerberos is via DNS MITM attacks.)  In other words, using FQDN here
is more of a Kerberos thing than a Hadoop thing.

> in KerberosAuthenticator.doSpnegoSequence(..) following line of code will just create
a principal of the form "HTTP/<host>",

>                 KerberosAuthenticator.this.url.getHost());{code}
>  but uri.getHost() is not sure of always getting hostname. If uri contains IP, then it
just returns IP.
> For SPNEGO authentication principal should always be created with <hostname>.
> This code should be something like this, which will look /etc/hosts to get hostname
> {code}            String hostname = InetAddress.getByName(
>                 KerberosAuthenticator.this.url.getHost()).getHostName();
> String servicePrincipal = KerberosUtil.getServicePrincipal("HTTP",
>                 hostname);{code}
