Subject [jira] [Created] (HDFS-4081) NamenodeProtocol and other Secure Protocols should use different config keys for serverPrincipal and clientPrincipal KerberosInfo components
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2012 05:06:03 GMT
Ahad Rana created HDFS-4081:
-------------------------------

             Summary: NamenodeProtocol and other Secure Protocols should use different config
keys for serverPrincipal and clientPrincipal KerberosInfo components 
                 Key: HDFS-4081
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-4081
             Project: Hadoop HDFS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: security
    Affects Versions: 2.0.2-alpha, 2.0.1-alpha, 2.0.0-alpha, 2.0.3-alpha
            Reporter: Ahad Rana


The Namenode protocol (NamenodeProtocol.java) defines the same config key, dfs.namenode.kerberos.principal,
for both ServerPrincipal and ClientPrincipal components of the KerberosInfo data structure.
This overloads the meaning of the dfs.namenode.kerberos.principal config key. This key can
be used to define the namenode's principal during startup, but in the client case, it is used
by ServiceAuthorizationManager.authorize to create a principal name given an incoming client's
ip address. If you explicitly set the principal name for the namenode in the Config using
this key, it then breaks ServiceAuthorizationManager.authorize, because it expects this same
value to contain a Kerberos principal name pattern NOT an explicit name. 

The solve this issue, the ServerPrincipal and ClientPrincipal components of the NamenodeProtocol
should each be assigned unique Config keys.
