Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-11187) NameNode - KMS communication fails after a long period of inactivity
Date Wed, 05 Nov 2014 03:03:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-11187?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14197421#comment-14197421

Aaron T. Myers commented on HADOOP-11187:

Hey Arun, the latest patch looks pretty good to me. Just one small comment - seems like it'd
be good to consolidate the "WWW-Authenticate" header constant into a single place, instead
of defining it in both the {{KerberosAuthenticator}} and the {{PseudoAuthenticationHandler}}.

I'll be +1 once this is addressed.

>             Project: Hadoop Common
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.6.0

> As reported by [~atm] :
> The issue is due to the authentication token that the NN has to talk to the KMS is expiring,
AND the signature secret provider in the KMS authentication filter is discarding the old secret
after 2x the authentication token validity period.
> If the token being supplied is under 1x the validity lifetime then the token will authenticate
just fine. If the token being supplied is between 1x-2x the validity lifetime, then the token
can be validated but it will be expired, so a 401 will be returned to the client and it will
get a new token. But if the token being supplied is greater than 2x the validity lifetime,
then the KMS authentication filter will not even be able to validate the token, and will return
a 403, which will cause the client to not retry authentication to the KMS.
> The KMSClientProvider needs to be modified to retry authentication even in the above
