Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-9461) JobTracker and NameNode both grant delegation tokens to non-secure clients
Date Sat, 06 Apr 2013 20:13:15 GMT
Harsh J created HADOOP-9461:

             Summary: JobTracker and NameNode both grant delegation tokens to non-secure clients
                 Key: HADOOP-9461
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9461
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: security
            Reporter: Harsh J
            Assignee: Harsh J
            Priority: Minor

If one looks at the MAPREDUCE-1516 added logic in JobTracker.java's isAllowedDelegationTokenOp()
method, and apply non-secure states of UGI.isSecurityEnabled == false and authMethod == SIMPLE,
the return result is true when the intention is false (due to the shorted conditionals).

This is allowing non-secure JobClients to easily request and use DelegationTokens and cause
unwanted errors to be printed in the JobTracker when the renewer attempts to run. Ideally
such clients ought to get an error if they request a DT in non-secure mode.

HDFS in trunk and branch-1 both too have the same problem. Trunk MR (HistoryServer) and YARN
are however, unaffected due to a simpler, inlined logic instead of reuse of this faulty method.

Note that fixing this will break Oozie today, due to the merged logic of OOZIE-734. Oozie
will require a fix as well if this is to be fixed in branch-1. As a result, I'm going to mark
this as an Incompatible Change.
