Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9421) Generalize SASL Support with Protocol Buffer
Date Wed, 15 May 2013 10:29:16 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9421?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13658221#comment-13658221

Kai Zheng commented on HADOOP-9421:
-----------------------------------

Luke good point. It’s great to resolve this issue if “we have a mechanism to evolve SASL
mechanisms/protocols negotiation without breaking general RPC backward compatibility” with
the RPC cleanup. With this support new authentication mechanisms can continue to be implemented
in current way as Daryn might be doing. And based on the mentioned mechanism hopefully an
opaque token can also be employed or at least supported without breaking RPC backward compatibility
as this JIRA desires. Such opaque token is needed by token authentication and single sign
on in (HADOOP-9392) where new authentication mechanism can be implemented and plugin-ed via
the token without involving to change this RPC work again. So my question would be:
1. Do we have any limit for the optional token field and what properties it must be of? Variable
of bytes would be great;
2. Do we have a flag field or something like that to mark the token type in client side, and
in server side it can interpret the token accordingly to the type?
3. Hopefully we can add token authentication handler with relevant callbacks in elegant way.

Thanks for your consideration.
