Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-2617) Replaced Kerberized SSL for image transfer and fsck with SPNEGO-based solution
Date Wed, 28 Mar 2012 01:55:23 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-2617?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13240104#comment-13240104

Jakob Homan commented on HDFS-2617:
-----------------------------------

bq. In the meantime can you answer Alejandro's question wrt we we need to keep the SSL HTTP
configuration?
We don't.  As described in the comments above, the posted patch is what we've deployed here,
not the final version to be committed.  Removing SSL is a fine thing to do, when I finish
the main patch.

> 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).
