Subject [jira] Commented: (HDFS-1150) Verify datanodes' identities to clients in secure clusters
Date Mon, 17 May 2010 18:28:46 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-1150?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12868336#action_12868336
] 

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-1150:
----------------------------------------

Why can't the current setuid code launch the DataNode code as root, DataNode does uid detection,
and then drops privs as necessary?  This allows you to store the user name to run the DataNode
process as in the XML, limits the dist to one setuid exec, fixes the necessity to run the
hadoop script as root, etc, etc.

Also, where is the equivalent fix for the TaskTracker?  Is anything preventing a TaskTracker
from giving bad input to a task?

> Currently we use block access tokens to allow datanodes to verify clients' identities,
however we don't have a way for clients to verify the authenticity of the datanodes themselves.
