Subject [jira] [Created] (HADOOP-13836) Securing Hadoop RPC using SSL
Date Mon, 28 Nov 2016 11:26:59 GMT
kartheek muthyala created HADOOP-13836:

             Summary: Securing Hadoop RPC using SSL
                 Key: HADOOP-13836
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-13836
             Project: Hadoop Common
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: ipc
            Reporter: kartheek muthyala

Today, RPC connections in Hadoop are encrypted using Simple Authentication & Security
Layer (SASL), with the Kerberos ticket based authentication or Digest-md5 checksum based authentication
protocols. This proposal is about enhancing this cipher suite with SSL/TLS based encryption
and authentication. SSL/TLS is a proposed Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) standard,
that provides data security and integrity across two different end points in a network. This
protocol has made its way to a number of applications such as web browsing, email, internet
faxing, messaging, VOIP etc. And supporting this cipher suite at the core of Hadoop would
give a good synergy with the applications on top and also bolster industry adoption of Hadoop.
The Server and Client code in Hadoop IPC should support the following modes of communication
1.	Plain 
2.	Secure
     a.	SASL encryption with an underlying authentication
     b.	New Proposed: SSL based encryption and authentication (x509 certificate)
