Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-13666) Only use existing SASL libraries in libhdfs++
Date Fri, 08 Jun 2018 18:51:00 GMT
James Clampffer created HDFS-13666:

             Summary: Only use existing SASL libraries in libhdfs++
                 Key: HDFS-13666
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-13666
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Task
            Reporter: James Clampffer

At one point there were plans to implement SASL support from scratch inside of libhdfs++.
Since then we added added Kerberos support through Cyrus SASL and GSasl.  I propose removing
the partial implementation from libhdfs++ since doing the secure handshake and encryption
are still marked TODO but it's unclear what getting that done involves.  That way we can focus
time on using Cyrus (GSasl uses GPL) to support DIGEST-MD5 auth and wire encryption.
