Subject [jira] [Updated] (HADOOP-13494) ReconfigurableBase can log sensitive information
Date Tue, 16 Aug 2016 22:20:20 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13494?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Andrew Wang updated HADOOP-13494:
---------------------------------
    Fix Version/s: 3.0.0-alpha2
                   2.8.0

I've committed this to trunk, branch-2, branch-2.8, but beyond that there are significant
conflicts due in part to some missing ReconfigurableBase changes. I took a look at backporting
these, but it seems hard.

Sean, do you mind preparing separate patches for branch-2.7 and branch-2.6? Thanks.

> ReconfigurableBase will log old and new configuration values, which may cause sensitive
parameters (most notably cloud storage keys, though there may be other instances) to get included
in the logs. 
> Given the currently small list of reconfigurable properties, an argument could be made
for simply not logging the property values at all, but this is not the only instance where
potentially sensitive configuration gets written somewhere else in plaintext. I think a generic
mechanism for redacting sensitive information for textual display will be useful to some of
the web UIs too.
