Subject [jira] [Updated] (HADOOP-10416) For pseudo authentication, what to do if there is an expired token?
Date Thu, 27 Mar 2014 16:49:20 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10416?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Tsz Wo Nicholas Sze updated HADOOP-10416:
-----------------------------------------

    Description: 
PseudoAuthenticationHandler currently only gets username from the "user.name" parameter. 
If there is an expired auth token in the request, the token is ignored (without returning
any error back to the client).  Further, if anonymous is enabled, the client will be authenticated
as anonymous.

The above behavior seems non-desirable since the client does not want to be authenticated
as anonymous.
