Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9421) Convert SASL to use ProtoBuf and add lengths for non-blocking processing
Date Mon, 10 Jun 2013 17:36:21 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9421?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13679663#comment-13679663

Daryn Sharp commented on HADOOP-9421:

Shorting out the NEGOTIATE for a re-connect becomes a bit complicated.  The connection header
doesn't contain a length like other RPC packets, so about the only way to signal the server
is another authProtocol to not send a NEGOTIATE, but expect a subsequent INITIATE.  As discussed
earlier, I'd prefer to defer the reconnect optimization to a followup jira.

BTW, I'm currently working on IP failover.  We're blocked on HA deployment because we can't
manage the logistics of updating confs and restarting every cluster & services like oozie
and hdfsproxy, etc when one cluster is HA enabled or its HA config changes.  IP failover is
the answer but that's blocked too because the service principal changes when failover occurs.
 The client needs the server's NEGOTIATE to correctly instantiate its SASL client.  This negates
the ability for the client to cache values for an immediate INITIATE.  The IP failover work
is based upon this jira.

bq. Though DIGEST is not exactly a precise word here, TOKEN is, IMO, even more nebulous. How
about CHALLENGE_RESPONSE or simply CR? I'd prefer the rename to be in separate JIRA as well,
as it doesn't really affect the wire protocol.

Actually, it does affect the wire because that is a value passed over the wire.  Ie. "TOKEN"
via "DIGEST-MD5", or "TOKEN" via "SCRAM", etc.
