Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-5716) Allow WebHDFS to use pluggable authentication filter
Date Sat, 04 Jan 2014 00:24:55 GMT
Haohui Mai created HDFS-5716:

             Summary: Allow WebHDFS to use pluggable authentication filter
                 Key: HDFS-5716
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-5716
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Haohui Mai

Currently the WebHDFS server only uses SPNEGO filters for authentication purposes. The design
serves the purpose well when SPNEGO is available, however, other services (e.g., the web UI)
where SPNEGO might be unavailable can also use WebHDFS.

Note that the web UI and the WebHDFS are served by the same Jetty server on the same port.
The Web UI can use customized authentication filters, it might make sense to allow WebHDFS
to take customized authentication filters as well.
