Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10904) Provide Alt to Clear Text Passwords through Cred Provider API
Date Wed, 30 Jul 2014 19:58:41 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-10904?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14079859#comment-14079859
] 

Alejandro Abdelnur commented on HADOOP-10904:
---------------------------------------------

[~lmccay], how about following a common pattern such as...

All components that load a password (i.e. {{FileBaseKeyStoresFactory}} for SSL stuff) would
add a new property (the old one + ".ref", ie: {{ssl.server.keystore.password.ref}}) that points
to the credential ID. If the *REF* the property is defined, it takes precedence over the old
property, if the *REF* property is not present, we print a deprecation warning and use the
old property.

> This is an umbrella jira to track various child tasks to uptake the credential provider
API to enable deployments without storing passwords/credentials in clear text.
