> Based on the discussion on HADOOP-10670, this jira proposes to remove {{StringSecretProvider}}
as it opens up possibilities for misconfiguration and security vulnerabilities.
> {quote}
> My understanding is that the use case of inlining the secret is never supported. The
property is used to pass the secret internally. The way it works before HADOOP-10868 is the
following:
> * Users specify the initializer of the authentication filter in the configuration.
> * AuthenticationFilterInitializer reads the secret file. The server will not start if
the secret file does not exists. The initializer will set the property if it read the file
correctly.
> *There is no way to specify the secret in the configuration out-of-the-box – the secret
is always overwritten by AuthenticationFilterInitializer.
