Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9479) Ability to plugin custom authentication mechanisms based on Jaas and Sasl
Date Wed, 24 Apr 2013 17:59:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9479?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13640727#comment-13640727

Benoy Antony commented on HADOOP-9479:

The SaslClient and Sasl server implementations accept parameters including Callbackhandlers.
These parameters could be independent of Hadoop or the Sasl Implementation.  The custom layer
allows the user to specify these parameters.

I was studying the related SASL jiras. With those changes, the mechanism of plugging in AuthenticationMethods
is going to change. I'll contribute to those jiras.

The new authentication mechanism should have both Jaas and Sasl implementations.
