Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9296) Authenticating users from different realm without a trust relationship
Date Tue, 23 Apr 2013 19:35:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9296?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13639468#comment-13639468
] 

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-9296:
-------------------------------------

I really don't think a new authentication method is needed for this "feature", nor should
the client have do any special logic.  There's nothing special that warrants contortions on
the client to do simple gssapi/kerberos.

The root cause is the client "guesses" the principal for a remote NN based on the principal
of its default NN.  This causes a number of problems which also manifests in your cross-realm
trust environment.  In HADOOP-9421 I've suggested the NN should provide the service of the
token it wants, as well as the service principal.  Why not leverage that to solve your no
cross-realm trust problem?  Ie. Have the NN return the principal in the user's realm.  In
this scenario, no client changes are required, and no special authentication method is required.

> Hadoop Masters (JobTracker and NameNode) and slaves (Data Node and TaskTracker) are part
of the Hadoop domain, controlled by Hadoop Active Directory. 
> The users belong to the CORP domain, controlled by the CORP Active Directory. 
> In the absence of a one way trust from HADOOP DOMAIN to CORP DOMAIN, how will Hadoop
Servers (JobTracker, NameNode) authenticate  CORP users ?
> The solution and implementation details are in the attachement
