Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-9653) Token validation and transmission
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2013 07:19:19 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-9653?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13687707#comment-13687707

Kai Zheng commented on HADOOP-9653:

To securely transmit token in Hadoop RPC in a way the defends against all of the classical
attacks, we might consider SPKM/LIPKEY approach besides the one SASL over SSL mentioned in
HADOOP-9533. Both assumes server certificate and optionally client certificate. GSS SPKM/LIPKEY
mechanism can fit seamlessly in current SASL RPC authentication framework but might require
significant implementation effort. SSL is another option but has compatibility and performance
challenges. Any thought here?

> HADOOP-9392 proposes to have customizable token authenticator for services to implement
the TokenAuthn method and it was thought supporting pluggable token validation is a significant
feature itself so it serves to be addressed in a separate JIRA. It will also consider how
to securely transmit token in Hadoop RPC in a way the defends against all of the classical
attacks. Note the authentication negotiation and wrapping of Hadoop RPC should be backwards
compatible and interoperable with existing deployments, so therefore be SASL based.
