Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2617) Replaced Kerberized SSL for image transfer and fsck with SPNEGO-based solution
Date Tue, 13 Dec 2011 21:33:30 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2617?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13168748#comment-13168748

Jakob Homan commented on HDFS-2617:

@Aaron - think about this some more, and not hearing any comments, I think it'd be better
to go with SPNEGO for a couple of reasons: (1) keep a consistent approach to the web interfaces
for the NN/2NN (we could re-use tokens from the map-output fetch, but it would be a bit messy)
and (2) the current kerbssl approach is used to fetch/renew/etc delegation tokens explicitly
so we don't have to have an API call (to enabled hftp).  Moving to SPNEGO for these would
preserve this behavior.

The next question is - how to deprecate the kerbssl.  It'll be quite annoying to have to support
both for a couple releases.

> The current approach to secure and authenticate nn web services is based on Kerberized
SSL and was developed when a SPNEGO solution wasn't available. Now that we have one, we can
get rid of the non-standard KSSL and use SPNEGO throughout.  This will simplify setup and
configuration.  Also, Kerberized SSL is a non-standard approach with its own quirks and dark
corners (HDFS-2386).
