Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10307) Support multiple Authentication mechanisms for HTTP
Date Wed, 29 Jan 2014 20:34:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10307?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13885768#comment-13885768

Robert Kanter commented on HADOOP-10307:

This sounds similar to the {{AltKerberosAuthenticationHandler}} added in HADOOP-9054.  The
{{AltKerberosAuthenticationHandler}} uses Kerberos or _some other AuthenticationHandler_ based
on the user agent.  For example, you can have all CLI access use Kerberos (by falling back
to the {{KerberosAuthenticationHandler}} and all browsers use some custom authentication (by
subclassing {{AltKerberosAuthenticationHandler}} to implement the custom authentication handler).
 You could have a chain of these authentication handlers to do more than two.  Would this
sufficient for your needs?
