Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9421) Convert SASL to use ProtoBuf and add lengths for non-blocking processing
Date Wed, 12 Jun 2013 16:12:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9421?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13681360#comment-13681360

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-9421:

bq. I don't think ID_TOKEN or SSO_TOKEN being appropriate in SaslRpcServer.AuthMethod.
No worries, this will eventually become dynamic and not live in the rpc server class since
we can't afford to change the code every time we add a new AuthMethod.  At the moment, I'm
only trying to make the minimal changes to the base wire protocol to allow future extensibility.

bq.  Challenge response is the main performance use case that's worth optimizing for.
All SASL mechanisms are challenge/response, not just tokens...

We can continue on another jira, but I think you are predicating the optimization on the assumption
the client can always pre-determine the AuthMethod to use.  That's one of the fundamental
flaws with the current implementation.  When there are more supported auths and more supported
tokens, the client's initial connection has no way to know which to chose until the server
tells it what it needs.  We might be able to optimize a re-connect but it's going to further
complicate and delay this jira.

To put this all in perspective, we're holding up the base SASL RPCv9 changes to discuss a
pre-mature optimization to avoid sending <100 bytes, compared to token negotiation requiring
at least 5X more bytes, and kerberos requiring at least 20X more bytes.  Both of these are
dwarfed by the real activity over the connection which why I feel we should defer to another
