Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-10959) A Kerberos based token authentication approach

Kai Zheng commented on HADOOP-10959:
------------------------------------

Status update.

Haox was accepted by ApacheDS and *Apache Kerby* was launched. We're working on it and implementing
the tokenPreauth mechanism in Kerby first. With the major work done there, we'll be back here
soon to realize the token support for Hadoop based on Kerberos by leveraging Kerby.

> To implement and integrate pluggable authentication providers, enhance desirable single
sign on for end users, and help enforce centralized access control on the platform, the community
has widely discussed and concluded token based authentication could be the appropriate approach.
TokenAuth (HADOOP-9392) was proposed and is under development to implement another Authentication
Method in lieu with Simple and Kerberos. It is a big and long term effort to support TokenAuth
across the entire ecosystem. We here propose a short term replacement based on Kerberos that
can complement to TokenAuth. Our solution involves less codes changes with limited risk and
the main development work has already been done in our POC. Users can use our solution as
a short term solution to support token inside Hadoop.
> This effort and resultant solution will be fully described in the design document to
be attached. And the brief introduction will be commented.
